Peak & Off Peak Seasons

The Ningaloo region enjoys a warm, dry climate year-round. However, summertime temperatures can be extreme, and a moderate risk of tropical cyclone also exists during this period. For these reasons, the most popular period for visitors to the Ningaloo is from autumn to spring.

Demand during these milder, mid-year months often exceeds the accommodation capacity of both Exmouth and Coral Bay. Therefore, accommodation pricing varies between ‘peak’ and ‘off peak’ season rates.

Peak and off peak season dates differ between operators, so please check with individual accommodation providers. As a general guide however, peak season runs from March – November.

When visiting the Ningaloo region, always be sure to book your accommodation well in advance to avoid disappointment. This is especially important during peak season, and particularly during the busiest periods around public holidays and school holiday periods.
