I visited Exmouth in Western
Australia a few years ago to dive with Whale Sharks. Exmouth is located
north of Perth on the Northwestern coast of Australia. This is a
great little town right off the Koolgarie reef. Exmouth use to be
a submarine depot during the war and still has a submarine radio tower.
It is a fun small town, there is an outside movie screen (like in drive
ins) on the base that is use by the locals. You rent out bean bags
and sit on the lawn and watch the movies (BYOB), it is awesome! Viewing
the stars of the Southern Hemisphere between movies is unreal!! The
town is small and has a quaint feel about it, the people are fantastic.
The restaurants and bars are basically those located in one of the four
or five hostels/dive shops. I stayed at the Pot Shot with a few mates
of mine. The beverage of choice was EB (Emu Bitters) with lots of
fresh fish for dinner and lots of spicy jerky called road kill for snacks!
