Vlamingh Head Lighthouse, Exmouth
(4.4/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Watch the sun rise at Vlamingh Head Lighthouse--and then come back at dusk to watch it set. The lighthouse, built in 1912, stands as one of only a few places on the Australian coast where you can witness sunrise and sunset (not at the same time, of course). Even if you arrive at midday, you'll still have sweeping views of the Indian Ocean in three directions. If you visit between August and November, bring your binoculars for the chance to see migrating whales. If you arrive for sunset during any month, you'll likely see others taking in the spectacle with glasses of wine in their hands.

  • Worth the trip up the hill. Take binoculars and you will see the whales, just leave plenty of time to take it all in. 
  • Light House to come up with money, which should be right up front, without having to bother the cliffs above. I was able to watch all the top of the view of the majority.

  • Visited the lighthouse on our last night in Exmouth, to watch the sun set on Ningaloo. A fantastic sight, and a sound reason why you have to visit here more than once,.
