One of the best Cape Range tours for those who enjoy the water is the Turquoise Bay Tour. This tour takes visitors to the best snorkeling bays in the park. People who take this tour will snorkel in Turquoise Bay, which earned its name due to the sparkling color of the water. There are vibrant coral reefs, sea turtles, stingrays, and many tropical fish in these waters.
Another of the great Cape Range tours is the Muiron Island Diving tour. This day dive is a guided dive in sheltered waters around the Muiron Islands. Do not be surprised if you see some of the ocean’s most beautiful underwater life! Both of these Cape Range tours include all needed equipment.
If you are enjoying Cape Range holidays and do not want to go diving or snorkeling, then consider one of the land based Cape Range tours. Consider touring the Milyering Visitor Centre, which is in the center of the park. You can enjoy hands on displays and audio-visual presentations about the marine and land life in the park. The park rangers are happy to answer questions and the Centre.
One of the best Cape Range tours runs daily in Yardie Creek. It is a boat tour through the gorge that Yardie Creek carved out. Here you can see many of Australia’s unique species of birds, as well as a colony of black-footed rock wallabies. The best time of day to see the wallabies is in the evening. They are very shy, however, so you might not be able to spot any. If you want to enjoy the best of the Cape Range tours, then reserve a Yardie Creek Gorge tour at the Exmouth Visitor Centre. It will be the highlight of your Cape Range holidays!
Cape Range is a huge park, and offers no less than one hundred and twelve camping sites. Most of the sites are close enough to the shoreline to provide access for campers to enjoy swimming, fishing, and other water activities. There are spaces for campers, but no power hookups. Many of the campsites do have public toilets, but there are not shower facilities. Make sure you arrive early in the day if you want to camp during the busy season, as they do not take reservation for campsites, and it is a first come first serve basis.
For a scenic drive while visiting Cape Range, take the Charles Knife Canyon drive. It is a grave road, and will take you along the edges of the range. You will get a birds-eye view of the gorges. Along the drive, be sure to stop and the many lookouts to get some stunning pictures of this beautiful area. There is also a walking tour that takes visitors to the Thomas Carter Lookout. The trail is sometimes closed due to rainfall, so check before you head out. Also, make sure to be careful when hiking in the canyon, as falls could result in serious injury or even death.
