North-west town crowned best holiday destination in WA

Exmouth is the best travel destination in WA, according to new rankings by a popular Australian travel site.

The resort town, which boasts magnificent sites such as Ningaloo Reef, was named WA’s Aussie Town of the Year by Wotif, an Australian domestic travel service.

Exmouth came in eighth place nationally. Australia-wide, Cairns took out the top spot.

“While an overseas getaway will always have its purpose and appeal, many Aussies do not realise the unique opportunity they have in front of them – to take advantage of having this enormous playground called Australia, all to themselves,” said Wotif Managing Director Daniel Finch

“With the overall loss to Australian tourism due to COVID-19 now totalling over $59 billion, there is a huge job ahead to get the industry back on its feet.

“With this year’s awards, we hope to motivate Aussies to discover a new corner of their own country.”

Last year, Wotif users crowned Exmouth home of the best potato scallop.
