They call it Gods Country - Exmouth W.A.

One of the outstanding memories of our recent motorhome holiday in WA was our time at Exmouth; Tina just didn't want to leave.

We stayed most of the time in the Exmouth Caravan Park just to the north of the main town centre and it was easy to walk around or just use the motorhome as our usual transport.

Exmouth is a small town of about 3,500 people situated just north of the Tropic of Capricorn, about 1,270 km north of Perth, and is lovely and warm all year round which is great for the main attraction at Exmouth — the Ningaloo Reef.

We tried diving on Ningaloo Reef which was supposed to have the most consistent congregation of Whale Sharks, big fish, Manta Rays, Turtles, Dugong and Humpback Whales and wow, the sea life we saw was absolutely amazing and the colours of the coral and tropical fish was stunning.

Being a little adventurous, Tina and I tried our hand at quad biking, hiring two bikes for the day and joined a more experienced rider group along beaches and bush tracks, what a day, fantastic but tiring and it was great to get back to the motorhome that evening, fire up the BBQ and collapse in into a deckchair with a cold one and just stare out at the golden sunset.

Our motorhome we were using at the time was a 2nd hand Leisure Seeker made by Winnebago. Being only 23' long with dual rear wheels, it took us to many a place off the beaten track without a worry. You can imagine what some of the dirt and development roads were like in North West WA but our Leisure Seeker wasn't fazed, it just went!

We carried a portable generator, a Honda 2 Kva which was great to run the air conditioning and occasional use of the microwave but it wasn't used very much, even though throughout most of the journey with was almost 3000 kilometres, we free camped most of the time and the batterys kept the lights going and almost everything else like the fridge, the cooktop and hot water system ran well on gas.

Even after decades selling motorhomes, we still think the best holiday you can have to recharge your own batteries is to get out there in a motorhome and just destress. You should try it.
