From the main road between Exmouth and the lighthouse you can find the signpost to the Mildura wreck. From the beach you can see a fair bit of what was left of the ship. It becomes more interesting if you know the history about it....More

We nearly got swept away on our first day of the holidays...do NOT snorkel out to the reef. Glad we all survived, and perhaps there were danger signs, but we didn't see them and there is NO help nearby. Stay in the shallows!

If you can time your visit with a low tide, the wreck makes for interesting viewing just off the reef. Easy access not too far from town makes it worth the drive out.

Wrecks are always interesting, and this one is close inshore, and also the story connects you to other parts of the coast. A nice drive, and a nice beach. No problems here!

Drove out to check out the wreck. Easy drive from Exmouth and the road is well sign posted to get there. Looks spectacular from the beach and from the lighthouse further up the road. Great beach to wander along & collect shells or beach comb....More

The wreck is very close to the shore so it's very vissible. A lot of nice things to see along this road and this is well worth a stop even though it's far from the highlight in the area

The sea has done its damage to this wreck as would be expected so there's not a lot left. But it's just off a very nice beach and in turtle season would be one of the places to go.

Wasn't sure how much would be visible so was quite surprised when we got there at low tide and could see a lot. It's so close to the beach as well so no binoculars needed. Another piece of history well worth visiting.

Lovely beach to view turtles and the Mildura Wreck. Kids enjoyed fossicking on the beach and collecting old coral and shells.

Was interesting to see the wreck on reefs only a short distance out. Could be made better if there was some details about the ship.
