How To Get There

We suggest you pick up an Exmouth Map & “Visit Ningaloo” publication from the Exmouth Visitors Centre (available free  ) to assist you with directions and distances to travel on the NW Cape. Please plan to arrive at the jetty at least 10 minutes prior to your departure time.
Also please note that DPaW fees apply for entry into the Cape Range National Park – just stop at the entry checkpoint of the CRNP to pay.

For those clients without a vehicle we can also offer the YCBT Bus Transfer Service to do the boat tour at Yardie Creek – bookings are essential, as seats are limited. Cost is $35 per seat (which includes the entry fee to CRNP), however please note, we can only take passengers who can sit in a “normal” car/bus seat (ie. not infants or young children) due to safety requirements. Please contact the Operators direct to discuss or book via the Exmouth Visitors Centre.

What To Bring

Camera, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, sunglasses, comfortable shoes, water.

If you are using the YCBT Bus Transfer Service, also bring your lunch/snacks as you’ll have some time to relax before or after your boat tour of Yardie Creek, before we take you back into town.

What To See

You’ll be surprised at the wide array of wildlife living in the gorge, including the rare black-footed rock wallaby, egrets, ospreys, bowerbirds and a variety of marine life. Go to gallery.
