Total Solar Eclipse Observation Site

Exmouth Harbour, North Cape, Australia 2023 solar eclipse
Exmouth Game Fishing Club Australia 2023 solar eclipse

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 planned observation site will offer catering options and toilet facilities will be available.  

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.
