Ningaloo Eclipse
Western Australia


On April 20, 2023 visitors to Exmouth will have front row seats to one of nature’s most phenomenal occurrences – a Total Solar Eclipse. At 11:27am, the shadow of the moon will graze the tip of Western Australia in a 40-kilometre wide track, as it travels over the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo region near Exmouth, making it the most accessible land-based place on Earth to view the spectacle.
