Silversea Luxury Cruises A Exmouth, Western Australia

Exmouth, Western Australia

The key location of Exmouth along the Western Australian coast has meant that this area lays claim to many interesting historical landmarks, industries and research stations, including the old Navy Pier and the Learmonth Solar Observatory, which is jointly operated by the IPS Radio and Space Services and by the US Air Force. In fact, Exmouth was built in 1967 to serve the American Naval Communication Station but has since become a tourist base for visits to the Cape Range National Park and Ningaloo Marine Park.

The cloud-free atmosphere especially suited for VLF (very low frequency) transmissions and the prolific marine wildlife has helped to attract tourism. But the infrastructure still remains rather limited.
