Nothing special about the lighthouse except the views from the top of the hill. A decent wayside stop on the way to the sights further inland.

It's one of the highest point to have a wider view of Ningaloo. Good for photo taking. Nothing special other than the view.

Nice spot with a good perspective view of the area. Worth the visit. The history of the location surprised me with all the World War involvement. Allow more time than you might imagine as it is a good site to visit.

Incredible views of the Ningaloo Reef, Exmouth Township and the Cape Range National Park. Great place for whale watching or sunrises and sunsets.

Worth the trip up the hill. Take binoculars and you will see the whales, just leave plenty of time to take it all in.

Visited the lighthouse on our last night in Exmouth, to watch the sun set on Ningaloo. A fantastic sight, and a sound reason why you have to visit here more than once,.

On your way to or from the Ningaloo National Park take your time to visit the Vlamingh Head Lighthouse. Not only will you discover a lot of historical background as to how and why Exmouth was populated by the white man, but you will also get a series of most fantastic views of the area.

Quite a lot of history attached to this lighthouse, views forever from atop the hill, if you feel up to it leave the car down below and walk up the hill.....

Fantastic spot to watch the whales with your binoculars. Watched the sunset & 10 minutes later was a full moon coming up. Best place in Exmouth!
