This place is great any time of day or night. The views are fantastic and the historical side of this place is even more special. Stop in and have a look.

Panoramic views from this height. Good vantage point to watch for whales. Numerous oil rigs just visible on the horizon. Some war relics here too well worth a read.

The history surrounding this lighthouse is displayed on boards for visitors, there is no access. The views up and down the coast are amazing, as is the sunset from here. Well worth visiting.

We visited the lighthouse as it's listed as one of Exmouth's tourist attractions. There's nothing really up there but you do get an amazing 360 degree view. Worth a visit while you are there.

You'll not be able to resist driving up to the lighthouse to take in the beautiful panorama! It is one of the most beautiful parts of the world: Cape Range National Park and Ningaloo Reef.

This lighthouse and its surrounding areas had so much things to see. It was amazing to see the sand bags from WWII still there and not been damaged. Watching the humpbacks swimming in the ocean was great to see as well from up at the lighthouse.
