Exmouth is a town on the tip of the North West Cape in Western Australia. The town is located north of the state capital Perth and southwest of Darwin.

The town was established in 1967 to support the nearby United States Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt. Beginning in the late 1970s, the town began hosting U.S. Air Force personnel assigned to Learmonth Solar Observatory, a defence science facility jointly operated with Australia's Ionospheric Prediction Service.
