With all beers brewed and spirits distilled on-site, a visit to the Whalebone Brewing Company in some ways guarantees a ‘real taste of Ningaloo’. This popular brewery and restaurant in Exmouth is literally beer and pizza and low-key vibes in a shed. Rural, relaxed and a whole lot of fun. 

Owned and operated by two local families with a love of craft beer, the pints on offer here are great, refreshing, true to style brews best enjoyed with mates and family in an authentic setting under the stars.

Complemented by delicious pizza topped with local ingredients, a kids play area and great tunes by local and travelling musicians, Whalebone is a place to kick off your boots (or thongs!) after a day of exploring the Ningaloo reef and range. It's hard not to love this one.

Join for some afternoon or evening snacks and enjoy a delicious cocktail or two. You can also take your pick from their solid selection of WA wines and beers.

An emphasis on seafood and local produce means you might find yourself coming back for more each night. Coral Coast chowder with a hint of lemon myrtle, anyone?

Thanks to its prime location overlooking the gulf - and depending on the time of year - you may just be lucky enough to witness a playful calf launching itself out of the water. Full moons are also spectacular to witness from the bounds of this relaxed restaurant in Exmouth.
