Cape Range National Park

National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Situated on the west side of Exmouth’s North West Cape is the Cape Range National Park; a spectacular landscape of rugged limestone ranges, breathtaking deep canyons and 60 kilometres of pristine beaches.

The Cape Range National Park covers some 50,581 hectares, with its northern boundary just 36 kilometres from the Exmouth township. Wildlife is abundant throughout the Cape Range National Park, with emus, echidnas, lizards, wallabies, kangaroos, dingoes and a variety of birds commonly sighted.

In ancient times the Cape Range was an isolated island as rising sea levels inundated lower lying areas. As a result of this geographic isolation, there are several species of plants and animals entirely endemic to the area, including the white centred variety of the Sturt’s desert pea and the beautiful green bird flower. Surveys have recorded over 630 species of wildflowers within the Cape Range National Park.

Visit the Milyering Discovery Centre, camp by the shores of the Ningaloo Reef, walk the hiking trails, take a boat cruise up Yardie Creek Gorge to spot the rare black-footed rock wallabies, or check out the spectacular canyon views of Charles Knife and Shothole Canyons. The Cape Range National Park is a nature lovers paradise!
