Interesting historic lighthouse with amazing coast to views. The interpretation was well set out and the intact original display of WW2 sandbags amazing! Well worth a drive up to this attraction.

Amazing views of the ocean and tip of the Range. The information boards are very interesting and there are plenty of spots to sit and look out. We went there three times to watch the sun set over the ocean and even captured a rainbow! The wallabies come out at dusk and are happy to stay for a photo. Beautiful... More

We drove all the way up the Hill to the Vlamingh Head Lighthouse for an awesome unobstructed View of The Exmouth Coast line from the higher Perspective where you can Catch both Sunrise and Sunset. An Extremely Scenic and Convenient Lookout point.

We stopped here on our first leg of our Ningaloo safari and had billy tea and fruit cake for morning tea and the views were awesome if your lucky you can get a glimpse of the humpback whales. The oil rigs in the distance are interesting

Just a lovely view of the beaches and great history boards explaining the reason for the lighthouse and the vital part the area played during WW11.

My wife and I had a local suggest we check out the lighthouse at sunset and it was really nice. Lots of people up there so get your spot a little early would be a handy tip

Got up early one morning to hike up to look out. What a view! We saw the sun rise over the Gulf. Stunning day the water so blue and only a handful of surfers out. Hike back down to caravan park via bush trail and saw wallabies and birds. Just lovely.

Wow! One word. All of the meals we ordered (despite our first preferences being sold out for the night) ewere beyond delicious. The salt and pepper squid came highly recommended, but no recommendation was needed for the paella. For $300 between 5, including several cocktails each, 5 Kennedy represents value. Best meal we've all had in some time, perth spots... More
