Absolute tourist trap, we fell for it and figured we drove the 20kms off the main road, might as well. All other lookouts (free) were better views. Wouldn’t recommend

At $14 for a family pass, it’s a worthwhile stop and activity on the Nullarbor drive. The road off the highway is sealed and it’s an easy quick side trip. Great short boardwalk walks & amazing views of the bight.

We did not like the fee to enter, bit of a rip off really. Out door dunny and taps that did not work probably due to the drought.

Too late for high season but spotted a couple of females and calves. Perhaps travel earlier in the year. Maybe September

We visited the Head of Bight at the start of October. There is a very sophisticated Visitors Centre on location and well worth a look. We walked down the boardwalk to the various available locations and saw 6 - 12 Southern Wright Whales lolling in...More
