Lovely view was very windy when we went but definitely a recommended visit when in Exmouth. The fuel was fairly cheap at the caravan park but it looked dusty so we kept driving.

Good spot for photos of the North West Cape! Call in on the way to Yardie Creek, Turquoise Bay, Tantabiddi boat ramp etc.

A fantastic view and a great place to watch surfers and windsurfers. Also had a great view and watched the whales , looking out for sprays and surfacing . Saw three and one come in very close to the shore - great views all round! A bit windy - dress warmly!

You have to stop and drive/walk up to the lighthouse. Good history on the site and the view are superb indeed. Well worth half an hour of your time.

An interesting story, a terrific view and some interesting displays worth a quick stop on your way to/from Cape Range National Park.

Not to visit the Lighthouse whilst in the region would be a shame. Located only a short drive from 'downtown' Exmouth, you'll be well rewarded with the most stunning and gorgeous view. Go on, do yourself a favour and Do It!

Really beautiful view of Exmouth, with whales splashing in the distance. Definitely go and watch the sunset. It can get busy, so get there early and take a little picnic.

It is free, so maybe it would rate higher for the cost in your viewpoint. The wife and I had a good time take pictures of the lighthouse, and surrounding area and views before and during the sun setting. We arrived about an hour ish before the sun started setting and we were able to find good parking at the... More
