The lighthouse is small, some history with WW1 sand bags still there. The view is expanse and its the only place you can see the sunrise and sunset. It gets quite windy, good clean fresh air. Worth driving up to see. There are also notice boards explaining some of the migrating whales etc.

Wonderful spot for a bottle of wine at Sunset, a few snacks, some good company and breathe the fresh air in readiness for a good nights sleep....

Great view, bit of history - spent about 10 minutes there. It's fine - nothing special. It was interesting to see the sand bags still piled up from the WWII

Nothing to the lighthouse. Only come for sunset but then everyone does. Try sunset from the top of the dune opposite Yardie Homestead. Much queiter and more scenic in my opinion.

Good to see a view from the top but little there to see about the lighthouse. I imagine a great sunset. Only a couple of minutes up and back from the main road.

Vlamingh Head Lighthouse gives a good view over the peninsula. It is nice to read the information on the lighthouse's history.

Old military installation and a lighthouse - that's all. Might be more interesting in whale spotting season

Enjoyed the view at sunset. Bring a bottle of wine and watch the sun setting over the water. Don't forget your camera.
