Ideal for a drop in for sunset viewing after a day on the west side beaches on your way back to town. Take some camp chairs and wine to watch the sunset, though make sure to take a torch (flashlight) cause as soon as the sun is gone it gets very dark very fast. Good spot to take star photos... More

The Vlamingh Head Lighthouse and lookout is a must see if you are in the area. Just a short drive from Exmouth it offers amazing views of the reef, the beaches and the antenna array at Harold Holt communications station.

Join the other 100 or so people who make the journey up to the lighthouse and watch the sunset in the evening.

If your camera has a panoramic setting, this is the place to go. I was told that this one of the few places in Australia that you can see both sunrise and sunset across the sea. The information boards are interesting to read.

A great way to end your day, watching the sun go down underneath this iconic lighthouse. Great history to learn behind the building while watching the Beautiful sunset. A must see

If you drive up the lighthouse, it is well worth it for a wonderful view...looks north up the peninsula and then south as well with some information plaques on what you can also, such as the whales, the oil rigs off shore.

One of the iconic ways to end a brilliant day on Ningaloo. You will need to share the space with all of the other sunset lovers, but there's plenty of room. Pack a bottle of wine and nibblies 👍

A popular spot to watch the sun setting into the horizon. Plenty of places to park the car and lay out the chairs to sit and relax while watching the sun go down with a nice cool drink after a day of snorkelling in the waters.

From here you can pretty much see ocean 300 degrees being on the cape. Easy access off the main road. I've seen whales breaching from here previously! There are some plaques outlining history. Only 10 minutes out of town. Definitely worth a visit!
