Project Australia 2023
Total Solar Eclipse Observation Site
Exmouth is a small resort town of some 2,600 people on Western Australia’s North West Cape. In WWII a large airport was built and in 1963 a naval town serving the US Naval Communication Station and the Learmonth RAAF Base was established. It is close to the Ningaloo Marine Park with its coral reefs, colourful fish and migratory whale sharks.
Our observation site is near the harbour and catering options and toilet facilities will be available. Exmouth is a very small town with maybe ten cafes, a handful of souvenir shops and two supermarkets, so facilities within the town are limited.
Weather prospects are very good in Exmouth as this is the driest time of the year, apart from the very occasional tropical storm systems which can blow through the region on occasion.
