We're already booked into Ningaloo Reef Resort, Coral Bay at the beginning of April 09 (can't wait - cold, wet n windy in Wiltshire today!). We want to visit the Nat Park, Yardie Creek etc for a day trip (or poss over nighter) but have been advised by the hotel it makes sense to do this from Exmouth before we fly out because it's a lot closer and we'll spend a lot less time driving.
Has anyone done a similar trip? Any tips or advice would be welcome please. We have a nine and 12 year old so need something 'child friendly' but for fairly well-travelled children (so aren't looking for anything too tame!)
Also, can anyone advise how early day trips leave Exmouth? We want to stay in Coral Bay as long as poss and wondered if we could drive up early in the morning, do a day trip, stay just one night in Exmouth afterwards, then fly back to Perth the next day? Or are we pushing our luck??!!
Many thanks. Sarah
