We got to the lookout but did not realise it was as big a walk as it is - approx 6 hours - so we will be better organised next time and will do it as it looked great.

This is a long drive on bad road and not really worth the effort if you are just going for the lookout.

if you are scared of heights this is not recommended. A short walk from the car park to the top of the hill looking down the canyon. well worth the effort.

Great short trip, close to Exmouth and easily accessible to all. Didn't do the walk but the drive was worth the views.

Took this trip with the Ningaloo Safari Tours day tour. Amazing rock formations and good commentary on how this range was formed.

The drive along is good but no views from the actual lookout. The final km is very rough so do not waste your time going there.
