Beautiful spot for sunset and whale watching!

A picturesque place to enjoy the sunset and possibly spot some whales breaching in the distance if you're there during humpback and southern right whale migration. (Beginning in... read more

A picturesque place to enjoy the sunset and possibly spot some whales breaching in the distance if you're there during humpback and southern right whale migration. (Beginning in May, they head north and return south around November.)

We enjoyed the great views from the lookout. Very informative information about Exmouth and the early history. It was very windy and we were treated to a 'Hang Glider' taking off from the top of the hill, which was very spectacular. One of the many places of interest around and in Exmouth. Kevin & Nolene

The View from the Lighthouse overlooks the more northerly part of Ningaloo Reef. On a clear day, it is possible to see the gas and oil platforms operating off the North West Shelf.

Loved watching whales from this top of the world spot. Easy access. Paved road. And some historical bits thrown in for good measure.

Great views of Exmouth, VHF towers, Ningaloo Reef and Cape Range National Park. We had a very informative visit with plenty of info about the history of Exmouth and surrounds on the information boards around the site. Fantastic photo opportunity.

A short drive up but well worth it for the views and some well presented local history. The lighthouse is on a hill at the north end of the Exmouth peninsular and offers 360 degree views of the beaches and hills down towards the Cape range National Park. Well worth stopping on the way down to the park to get... More

Nothing spectacular. Busy area at dusk. Be early to set up for a peaceful end to the day. Great panaromic view of the ningaloo reef.

There is an interesting display discussing the light house and the history of the area. It's a steep but easy drive above the highway and gives wonderful views of the Exmouth area.

Great sunsets and moon rising. Brilliant views of coast. Sun setting had all colours and was a great place to have a wine and relax as sun set.
