"Great Investment opportunities with holiday bonus"

We have a few properties in Exmouth. One we bought when the market was just on a growth spurt and one we bought at the height of the boom. We rent them out as holiday homes and have the bonus of making money from them, plus being able to holiday in them whenever we want.
We get at least 20-30 weeks a year holilday rental and then we stay in our homes for maybe 10 weeks of the year flying up from Perth whenever we are able to get away.
Exmouth is a great town to holiday in if you like fishing, boating, hiking, beach nothingness, snorkelling, diving, or just getting some warmth into your bones when it is cold in the south. There is so much to do you can never get bored. But it depends of course on your expectations. If you are looking for a tourist town 'like Broome' then Exmouth is not for you. No glitze... no fancy shops or restaurants. But it has everything you actually 'need' from a town and it has great low key restaurants, plenty of choice for accommodation and so much nature to keep you occupied.
Of course I would always choose a holiday home to stay in as your freedom and privacy is guaranteed and the cost is lower than hotel prices. But the choice is yours.
As far as house prices go...the sooner you get into the market the better. Nothing in Exmsouth is getting cheaper.

"One word. EXPENSIVE!!!"

Sure Exmouth is a lovely little town with nice beaches & some good fishing but be warned Exmouth would have to be one of the most expensive places in Australia to buy a property.

You will need a minimum of half a million dollars to buy a very average house & it would be over 30 years old. Anything decent will set you back $750,000 plus.

Exmouth has a terrible shortage of land as does a lot of other Northwest towns. Of course that is why the prices are so high. Considering the size of the state of W.A. they are not short on available space.It is obvious that the government namely Landcorp is very blase about the issue.If these towns are to prosper & grow now would be a good time for Landcorp to get their act together & start freeing up & selling some affordable land.

"Gateway to Nigaloo Reef and friendly town."

Located 1270 kms north of Perth, Exmouth is a major coastal town now favored for a tourist destination. Although relatively small with a population of just over2500, Exmouth is the gateway to Ningaloo Reef and the Cape Range National Park. There is plenty of shopping here with supermarket and specialty stores as well as a beauty salon, massage therapist, newsagency, toyworld etc. Be warned though that the only service provider in Exmouth for mobile phone services is Telstra but sim cards can be purchased at a number of outlets here. Being a tourist area there are plenty of restaurants and cafes as well as takeaway food bars and there a numerous opportunities to partake in some great seafood. The climate here is tropical but is prone to cyclones during the cyclone season. Exmouth has all the amenities you need with a medical centre, fully equipped hospital, emergency services, and allied health professionals. There is a pre primary, primary and secondary school as well as extra subjects available. This can be distance or face to face learning modes. Marine and nautical Studies are also taught in Exmouth. There are plenty of playing fields for a number of sports and a full sized swimming pool as well. Property prices are quite high here and rentals tend to be scarce.
