Lighthouse Bay

Natural Attractions

Lighthouse Bay is extremely popular due to the diverse range of water based activities on offer. Try your hand at fishing from the beach, surf the waves, swim in the calmer shallow waters or just laze on the beach and take in the beauty of the bay. Whilst on the beach you will be able to see the remains of SS Mildura which ran aground in 1907 following a cyclone.

The area is home to several exceptional dive sites for the diving enthusiast. With its proximity to the Ningaloo Reef, depending on the time of year you visit, you could find yourself diving with gigantic whale sharks or manta rays. Head out on a dive boat to explore the profusion of colour from the coral along the ocean bed and witness thousands of tropical fish gliding through the waters.

Lighthouse Bay is on the edge of the Cape Range National Park which is home to breathtaking canyons and gorges. Visit the famous multi-coloured Yardie Creek Gorge, and search for one of 700 caves throughout the park. Lighthouse Bay is a short drive from Exmouth and 14 hours drive north of Perth.
