Stunning Views

Apart from the amazing views from the lighthouse it was very informative and interesting. Doesn't take much time out of your day and on the way to Ningaloo.

The lighthouse is on the way to the Nigaloo Marine park and as only one minute drive up from the main road is well worth a visit. Great views with interesting information and makes you appreciate how large the area is.

Can't go in, but the view is amazing from there. We watched the sunset, and liked being there. There are some informative charts and artifacts.

brilliant to watch the sunrise and sunset all in one day at the same place. The day we watch the sun go down on Friday 15th of May a couple were having their wedding photos taken.Beautiful!

As the sun doesn't set over the water you will need to take a drive. The lighthouse is close to Exmouth, about a 15 minute drive. Great place to watch the sunset over beautiful clear blue waters in a barren place.

We drove up to this lighthouse to photograph the sunset. It was my husband's birthday and he loves sunset photography. Wow! The colours and cloud cover made for some great shots. The longer it went on the more vibrant the colours became. However, don't forget mosquito repellent! We did! They were fierce.

Beautiful place to view sunrise and sunset! We got an unimpeded view of the sun rising above the horizon and setting! Pretty amazing ! The 102 years old lighthouse also looks slightly orangy, very beautiful and romantic when reflecting the sun rays!

The lighthouse needs to have some money spent to allow a better visitor experience. There was some historical info to read & a good view from the lookout spot, but it would have been great to have an opportunity to learn more. Even taking a photo was difficult as people were parked along the road nearby and cars were in... More
