Centrally located on Payne Street effectively within the town centre, the proposed development will include a mix of studio, 2-bedroom and 4-bedroom apartments, together with communal guest facilities and has been architecturally designed by WA-based firm Whitehaus.

Aligned with the Shire of Exmouth’s vision to activate the town’s central commercial district, guests will be a short walk from supermarkets, coffee shops, pubs and recreation facilities.

Head of Fiveight, Tattarang’s property division, John Meredith said the company was committed to investing in the Exmouth community for the long-term.

“Exmouth has emerged as one of the world’s must-see destinations with tourists wanting to experience and soak in the beauty and remoteness of this amazing corner of Western Australia,” Mr Meredith said.

“Yet Exmouth’s popularity as a tourist destination has left the town desperately short of accommodation options, which is costing the community and local businesses precious income due to the fact visitors are being turned away.

“We’re hoping to help ease that shortage with this new exciting project.”

Exmouth Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chair David Gillespie welcomed the development proposal. “During Covid and peak seasons, we’ve urged visitors to plan ahead and book accommodation before visiting Exmouth.

The town needs new accommodation, and Fiveight’s proposal will also help support local business,” Mr Gillespie said.

Committed to the future of Exmouth and Nyinggulu, Tattarang is currently seeking approval for the Ningaloo Lighthouse Resort project. Detailed in the application, lodged with the Shire of Exmouth, is Tattarang’s vision to create a Western Australian tourism icon through the transformation of the existing Exmouth caravan park into a sustainable world-class resort.

Exmouth’s tourism industry would like to attract more high-value visitors to the Ningaloo region. Integral to delivering a great visitor experience, Fiveight is excited to offer this much-needed short stay serviced apartment accommodation development to meet growing demand in Exmouth.
