Thinking of staying for a week in October 2015 do we require to know any disadvantages of the area at this time of year.
I reckon if you go before oct if you can, possibly August you will be able to swim with the whale sharks, see whales and dugongs. A week is a good amount of time. Make sure you check out Yardi Gorge, Turqouise Bay, Oyster stacks. You might need a wet suit as the water was quite cool last week when I was there. The town is small but plenty of do and everything that you pay in Exmouth is much cheaper than Broome. You may be in time for the turtle breeding season.
Apart from the travel distance to get there, just bring your sun screen. Cyclones are long gone!
Probably you would arrive just at end of whale sharks but still plenty of good diving at reef and plenty to do and see. Gorge national parks.Shopping centre prices are fair. Good coffee shops. Temp ok, good luck
