Journey back in time as we explore the history of the Exmouth region, from the traditional owners inhabitation here for over 30,000 years to the first pastoralist to the modern day.

The historic Krait WWII Memorial, spectacular Charles Knife Gorge, Jurabi Turtle Centre & Vlamingh Head Lighthouse are some of the sights that you will visit on this tour,

The day begins with pick up from your Exmouth accommodation just before 8:30am. We then take the drive to out first destination, Krait WWII Memorial (25-minute drive). Along the way your guide will provide commentary about the area's natural and human history, and we keep our eyes out for local wildlife such as Emus and birds of prey. At this first stop you can delve into WWII history and learn about the secretive Operations Potshot, Jaywick & Rimau, in which Exmouth played a crucial role.

Next stop is Charles Knife Gorge, this stop provides impressive views as you ascend to 311m elevation to look out on to the Exmouth Gulf and the canyons of Charles Knife - known by locals as the 'mini Grand Canyon'. Then head north, passing back through Exmouth town on your way to the Jurabi Turtle Centre, where you will learn all things turtles. Learn about the three species of turtles that mate, nest and hatch along the Ningaloo Coast, their life cycle, habitat and the important work that is happening to conserve these species.
