“Definitely worth putting on your "must do" list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

If you are visiting Exmouth, it is well worth the drive to Yardie Creek in the Cape Range National Park for the Yardie Creek Boat Tour. We had seen the Boat Tour featured on a travel show recently, so decided that it was something that we would like to do. The boat tour departs from Yardie Creek Jetty with owner/operator Peter Maier expertly guiding the boat gently up the creek & providing commentary about the rock formations, flora & fauna along the way. The trip up the creek takes about 30 minutes each way with Peter providing plenty of opportunity to take photos for people sitting on both sides of the boat. At $35 per person we considered this very good value for money and would recommend it to others.

“stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

a wonderful hour's boat trip, marvellous rock cliffs, wallabies and birds, great information provided by Peter who somehow maintains his enthusiasm and love of the place despite obviously have given these talks many times.. A bit over an hour's drive from exmouth. Departs at 1100 and 1230. cost $35 each.

“See the Rock Wallabies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

A really gentle glide up Yardie Creek and you see the black footed rock wallaby population. The tour boat guide was very welcoming and knowledgeable.

“Black footed rock wallabies!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

We only found out about this activity when I started reading up on the Cape Range National Park. It is not a long tour, but a pleasant outing with terrific opportunity for spotting animals and birds. The boatman knew his stuff, telling us a lot about the area and being sure we spotted all the highlights.

One of the reviews below suggests a kayak, and that could have been great, too, for those who like kayaking. You would have to plan in advance to do this... check out the map and distances. We walked up the trail afterwards, but did not go far on the uphill rocky part, where you would have to go if you were trying to see animal life - it was pretty rough (not sure a naive person would be able to spot wallabies even if they were visible - they are very well patterned to blend into their environment).
