Dont miss this one, the views are amazing. About a 15 min ride from Exmouth and a little steep road and you will rewarded with excellent views of the oceans. While we were there we saw many whales breaching. Bring the binoculars. There are some very interesting historical pieces up there.

We drove to here to wait for sunset in this corner of the earth. The color of sky, infinity ocean with the lighthouse created a romantic Monet painting in WA. Awesome!

This attraction is a must to see. An easy drive to get to and what a great view of the land and sea. We saw many whales and manta's today while there. Great history as well

I love coming up here to sit for a while and watch the waves, maybe spot a whale and when we used to stay nearby, get phone and internet reception. Good information boards and very photogenic-well worth a visit I think.

Stayed here. The place is filthy. Toilets and showers rarely get cleaned. The Bbq's weren't cleaned. Family members had to clean units before entering. Advertising on media is all false. Stay somewhere else.

Fintastic 360 view of the area. During whale season you can see humpbacks. Bring binoculars! The lighthouse itself was locked so we couldn't go up. It's a historical military site with info signs to tell you all about it. You can get up there by car.
