Victorians can now get to the world-class sparkling waters of Exmouth with ease after Qantas has announced new direct flights from Melbourne to Exmouth.
The first flight is set to depart Melbourne on 30 April 2023, with five-hour flights between Tullamarine Airport and Learmonth (Exmouth) Airport to run twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays. It will shave some three hours off the original route flying via Perth.
Direct flights are set to be available during Exmouth’s peak season from April until October 2023, and specials are on offer from today with prices from $399 one-way when booked at least 45 days in advance (subject to availability).
The news couldn’t have come at a better time, with the small coastal town recently being crowned Australia’s Top Small Tourism Town for 2022.
“Our tourism strategy is focused on attracting more tourists to support local business to sustain more local jobs and support more local businesses,” Tourism Minister Roger Cook said in a statement.
Exmouth certainly packs its fair share of the big-ticket attractions like swimming alongside whale sharks, but a deeper dive into the stunning landscape reveals the ultimate adventure destination with ancient surrounds, boutique brews, and the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef.
It’s arguably the best of WA’s dreamlike landscape in one small area and is now even more accessible to those over east.
