A worthwhile short run up from the peninsular road, from where interesting 360 degree views can be had (it was said you could watch whales from there at the right times).

Definitely a must see when in Exmouth! It's not a long drive to get to and well worth the effort. Looking out in every direction, I was amazed at how beautiful the coastline is. 👍

The main attraction is the views from the car park, although when we were there we could not access the light house. Well worth the time to visit.

Definitely worth checking if you are in the area. Amazing ocean views. Bit busy but except that it's very cosy place with some good stories to read

Loved to read the history and look at the view from the top. The 360 view of both the sea and the hills is truly amazing it's only a quick stop. The history of the lighthouse was fascinating also great read.

Great views from the base of the lighthouse and well worth the very small detour on your way along the coast.

Have been here twice and always love it. A great place to watch sunset, dont forget to bring a cardigan or jumper because it can get very windy here. Dont forget to visit Jurabi turtle park during turtle nesting and hatching season, it is just 5 mins drive from the lighthouse.
