Nice view of the ocean and can be windy. If you are driving past take some time to stop for a bit and check out the view.

Not far from Exmouth, with a spectacular view along the coast and up to the end of the peninsula and across to the gulf. Interesting bit of history to read also

Wonderful place to give long distant views on a 360 deg vista,especially for sunsets. Very informative on why the lighthouse was built but not sure if there is entry to it as we arrived there late evening. Makes a very good landmark when travelling on the never ending roads.

Worth the short detour and informative postings of historical interest. Our guide also told us about WW2 and subsequent airforce postings in this area

Easy missed but easily accessed from the main road, the short drive to the lighthouse affords excellent coastline views for 100+ kilometers. The are informational plaques to enlighten visitors, but you can't enter the lighthouse. Go for the expansive views. Windy!

My family have been travelling the north of WA for a lot of years. My first memories of family trips were camping on the beach (back when you were allowed to without the rangers moving you on) and taking the long hike up the hill to the Lighthouse. I have photos of me, my mum and dad at the top,... More

Worth visiting just to see the expanse of ocean all around you, learn a bit more about the history of the area and get some great photos. We were even lucky enough to see a whale!

Magnificent view from the lighthouse, read the history on the boards. Watched the sunset. Shame on the person who left toilet paper and a brown mess, just over the guard rail, toilets are only 1/2 km away. Just be careful where you step.

Set at the edge of the Cape Ranges and extending into the Ningaloo Reef at the edge of the Indian Ocean, this point is a great lookout for the sea and land behind. Was a little miffed that someone was parked right next to the lighthouse in such a way that he was in line with the best photo ops.... More
