A great option for budget accommodation is located conveniently within the Potshot Hotel Resort. Enjoy the laid back, social atmosphere in the common outdoor area or head to the pub for a beer.
Exmouth is the perfect place to base yourself as you explore the Ningaloo Reef. Book a tour to swim with whale sharks and manta rays, go snorkelling or head west and explore the gorges of Cape Range National Park.
Dorm rooms, twin, double and single rooms available, all with an ensuite bathroom and air conditioning. The common areas include an undercover outdoor BBQ area, a spacious kitchen, laundry, and lounge with internet facilities. All of this is next to the pub, which has a swimming pool and great Asian-style beer garden.
A quick 5 minute walk will bring you to the town centre, with two supermarkets, a pharmacy, bottle shop and more. Also, if you’re looking for a cheap dinner, Planet Burgers parks their food van behind the pub in the evenings.
A short drive north will bring you to the Ningaloo Marine Park boundary. Learn about the turtles that come here to lay their eggs before you explore the beautiful sanctuary zones and go snorkelling at Lakeside or Turquoise Bay. You will see the Harold E. Holt Naval Communications Station and Vlamingh Head Lighthouse on the way. Make sure you head up to the lighthouse – the view is fantastic.
