If you want a great view of Exmouth & its beaches this is the place to go. I believe it is only place where you can watch the sunset & sunrise. Unfortunately I did not get to see either.

Lovely spot for views out to sea looking at Ningaloo Reef. In season you can spot whales swimming and breaching out at sea - humpback and calves during September/October.

A stunning outlook with panoramic views of Exmouth Gulf and surrounds. The headland also played a part in WW2 as a radar post which has been preserved.
