Cape Range is a national park in Western Australia, stretching out about 50 km along the North West Cape coast south of Exmouth.

The scenery of Cape Range National Park features a large expanse of limestone rock ranges, caves and massive canyons like the Charlie Knife Canyon. That landscape is complemented by a long stretch of fantastic and blisteringly white beaches and turquoise waters along the coast.

Speaking of turquoise waters, the beach and snorkelling at Turquoise Bay is probably the best of all. Out in front lies the Ningaloo Reef. Wildlife is prevalent too, with emus, red kangaroos, lizards and rock wallabies as well as numerous bird types roaming the area.

Driving trails head inland for further exploration, while camp grounds are plentiful right along the coast. Do take note that you won't have either power nor water there and at times they do get popular and you may to queue for them at the park entrance. [Review by travelindicator]
