New 2023 Exmouth Eclipse Tour

New 2023 Exmouth Eclipse Tour

Dear Travellers,

On April 20, 2023, the small town of Exmouth in Western Australia will experience a rare and beautiful solar eclipse. This coastal town of around 2,800 locals is the only location in Australia where the eclipse can be viewed in Totality, and one of only three locations worldwide, alongside East Timor and remote West Papua.

The eclipse is no ordinary astronomical occurrence but a rare Hybrid that will bring eclipse chasers from all over the world. During the 21st century, 224 solar eclipses will occur, however, only seven will be Hybrids. This is the rarest form of a solar eclipse and only occurs when an Annular and Total Solar Eclipse occur in the same event.

In Exmouth, at 11:27 am, viewers will witness a Total Solar Eclipse and the optical phenomenon known as the Diamond Ring Effect. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as there have only been two Hybrid Total Solar Eclipses visible from land in the last century; one in 2013 (Africa) and one in 1930 (North America), as most are only visible at sea. Moreover, WA has not experienced any Total Solar Eclipse since June 1974.

Dubbed the ‘Ningaloo Eclipse’, Exmouth will have front-row seats to this remarkable event, but the Exmouth Peninsular is worth a visit in itself. On our 2023 Eclipse Expedition, we will also visit Coral Bay, one of the gateways to the Ningaloo Marine Park, a coastal stretch made up of white sandy beaches, crystal clear blue water, fringing reefs, and tropical and temperature marine life, including whale sharks, manta rays and dugongs.

Furthermore, we will take time on the drive up to visit Kalbarri and Kalbarri National Park, and Cervantes and Lesueur National Park on the return to Perth including a farewell lunch of Australian crayfish.
