Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Exmouth 17 October 2006

After all the hype, Exmouth was a forgettable town. It was established as a joint Australian/American communication base, but unlike similar towns such as Woomera, has little charm about it. Although the developers are trying to ‘Noosify’ it, it is still run down and lacking any central hub about it. Saw the excavators digging out the canals for the new development that includes a Novotel Resort, with blocks between $450 – 700,000. The only thing going for it is that it is close to Ningaloo Reef, 60km away, that is very popular with tours and campers. Maybe that will be enough, although the photos we saw of the 1999 cyclone would make anyone think twice before buying. On the way in we purchased king tiger prawns and mud crabs from a big well run prawn farm and feasted on them that evening, with Alamo and Moema.
