Solar Eclipse
Western Australia


The 2023 Solar Eclipse is an extraordinary and rare astronomical event that represents a unique opportunity for Western Australia.

On April 20, the shadow of the moon will graze the tip of the state in a 40-kilometre-wide track, as it travels over one of the most beautiful parts of the world – the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo region near Exmouth.

Exmouth is the only town within the line of totality making it one of the only places on earth to experience a Total Solar Eclipse, one of nature’s most phenomenal occurrences.
