Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The wreck was part of a day’s drive during which we saw humpback whales and turtles from the shoreline, and the visit to the wreck coincided with a low tide, all evidencing what a wonderful yet perilous coastline Australia has.

    This monument honors the submarine base “Operation Potshot”, a code name the United States Navy in 1942 as a refueling facility. Here is where armed forces personnel operated early warning radar, radio stations, anti-aircraft guns and submarine fighter cover. The United States submarines used this area as a refueling base. The base was bombed by the Japanese in 1943 and a cyclone in 1945 resulted in the base being closed. On the grounds is a remnant of what was called a “ball float”. It is believed to have been as a mooring point for boats involved in Operation Potshot. The other is a remnant of what was a floating dock used in World War II. The granite boulder marks the place how the MV Krait left was used in Operation Jaywick, the boat was used in the raid on Singapore Harbor in 1943.

    This spot is further into the park than Turquoise Bay which is where most people head for. It’s worth the extra effort.

    So quiet. Hardly anyone there. Good snorkelling off the beach and around the rocks where you’ll also see little crabs scuttling around.

    When you drive in, if you don’t have a 4WD park up just before you hit the sand.

    The Big Prawn is one of many big things across Australia. It was originally commissioned by MG Kailis and installed at MG Kailis Gulf Fisheries in Learmouth in 2004. The Kailis family later donated the sculpture to the Shire of Exmouth and it was relocated to its present position in 2014 after a painting makeover. It was constructed by Brian Paskins, weighs 2,000kgs and stands almost seven meters high. If you want to see the Big Prawn in all its glory, don't visit between December & March inclusive as its removed and stored for the cyclone season.
