The interpretive signs here are really well done and give excellent historical as well as locally informative information. Not overdone as some. Well done people!

Great spot to watch the sun go down. Wonderful vista of the area as well. Get there early to secure a good parking spot and bring your camera. No toilets!

Well worth the short drive from Exmouth to the lighthouse to see the spectacular views and read up on some of the history of the area.

If you're so inclined you can watch the sunrise and the sunset from this point. Check out the sandbags dating from WW2 that have petrified.

Drove up here on our first night in Exmouth - lovely sunset, giving great views and colours, including on the sandstone lighthouse itself. Nice info boards, enough parking.

Many locals recommended us to head to the lighthouse for sunset - I think it may have been to clear out the pubs so they could enjoy their own sundowners in peace! It's a nice enough spot, but probably not its all cracked up to be.
