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!

Part of my,glass bottom boat trip was a visit to this wreck. Thankfully our driver was able to give us the history of the wreck. Very little signage, easy to drive past the turn off. Lots of local flies to keep you company.

Unless you're really, REALLY into shipwrecks this one is not special. It is visible for sure, but not much is left and what is has been graffitied by what I have to say are very committed graffiti artists. The best part of our trip down...More

Went on a trip to WA where the wreck was one of the sites we visited. It was ok even if we saw it in distance and our guide wasnt able to tell the story around it very well.

Take a five minute drive off the main road and catch a glimpse of an early 20th century wreck rusting away about 80m off the coast. It was a cattle ship. I believe the crew survived. Cows don't swim too well though... :)

The wreck of the Mildura is quite interesting to look at, and you can see a surprising amount of it from shore. The best time to go is when the tide is at its lowest point to get the best view. You can also walk...More

Well -- it is the remains of a early 20th century cattle ship -- BUT - no explanations of what happened or about the ship - or in fact of anything-- so hardly worth the short drive -- unless you are filling in time !!

Interesting to see the wreck, which is a rotting hunk of metal just offshore, but certainly don't put it at the top of your list of things to see in Exmouth.

Worth 30 minutes of your time and drive there. Easy to see, a bit of history. Nice beach as well. Not far out of the way.

I only saw it from the beach but still found it impressive. Those with diving gear are probably in a better position to comment.
