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

The views up and down the coast from here are stunning and sunset is a show not to be missed. Bring some binoculars as you may be lucky enough to see whales breaching (we weren't...)

Anyone going to the Cape Range or wanting a good overview of the area should go up to the Vlamingh Head Lighthouse. It has extensive views up and down the coast and along the northern end of Exmouth. We watched humpback whales breaching for about an hour here....a pair of binoculars makes it even better.

great view up and down the coast. If you are lucky you might get to see whales from up here. We are taking photo of our vehicle in front of lighthouses around oz so this was a good stop.

Lovely view was very windy when we went but definitely a recommended visit when in Exmouth. The fuel was fairly cheap at the caravan park but it looked dusty so we kept driving.

Good spot for photos of the North West Cape! Call in on the way to Yardie Creek, Turquoise Bay, Tantabiddi boat ramp etc.

A fantastic view and a great place to watch surfers and windsurfers. Also had a great view and watched the whales , looking out for sprays and surfacing . Saw three and one come in very close to the shore - great views all round! A bit windy - dress warmly!

You have to stop and drive/walk up to the lighthouse. Good history on the site and the view are superb indeed. Well worth half an hour of your time.
