Viewing the Eclipse in and around Exmouth

Exmouth in the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo region is an awe-inspiring place, home to Australia’s largest fringing reef and the dramatic gorges of Cape Range National Park. As a bucket list bonus for visitors, the Ningaloo Eclipse will take place during whale shark swimming season.

With high numbers of visitors expected to travel to the region on the day of the Eclipse, dedicated viewing areas in and around Exmouth will be available for visitors to witness the Eclipse in a safe way.

Viewing in Exmouth

Locations for a special community viewing site within Exmouth are being considered as part of the towns activities and events. Further information on the viewing site will be provided should a suitable option be established.

Around the Region

Whilst Exmouth is in complete darkness for just over a minute, the rest of Western Australia will experience a partial solar eclipse, with some locations experiencing more ‘darkness’ than others. The town of Onslow will experience a deep partial solar eclipse with over 99% of the sun being covered by the moon. Those south of Exmouth in Carnarvon will witness 97% coverage, whilst in Perth it will be 72% coverage.
