Things to do in Exmouth during October School Holidays

Things to do in Exmouth during October School Holidays are plentiful in and around town.  In October the sun is very warm as is the water at Town Beach.  Take the children down to the beach for a swim and play.  Just outside of Exmouth is Pebble Beach where you can find some glorious colourful pebbles. Children can fish from the beach or at the nearby Marina off the rocks (with caution the rocks can be slippy). Bundegi Jetty is a good place during October for the children to catch squid that are running.

Tours and Adventure

You can treat the family to SUP lesson the calm waters make this a fun event for all ages. Or book a local Exmouth tour, such as swimming with the whalesharks or the glass bottom boat tour.

Around Town

Located in the Exmouth town centre is a local swimming pool with a separate children’s wading pool. Nearby in beautiful Federation Park is a FREE children’s water spray park. Pack a picnic for lunch or pickup lunch at a local cafe and sit back, relax while the kids run around the water park and surrounds.  There is also a skateboard park located on Murat Road next to the Talanjee Football Oval for the older children.

Gorge Walks and Exploring Cape Range National Park

Why not take the children out for a drive to Charles Knife Gorge. The drive  will take you over the top of the one of the most impressive gorges in Western Australia. Once at the top take in the magnificent views over Charles Knife Canyon and to the capped Cape Range oil well. The Children will find this a thrilling ride as the road is half dirt and exciting to drive on.
