We went up and views the sunset (along with many others!) and it was the perfect vantage point. Take a bottle with you and soak up the experience.

Just go see the sunset from here. You can spend all day and see it rise over water and set on water in the west!

I drove up here for sunset. It was such a lovely view. Don’t even need to go all the way up to the lighthouse. They is a parking bay half way up which has amazing panoramic views of the sunset over the sea.

Amazing 360 degree views. Windy a little bit wild and untamed. Watch the sunset or migrating humpback whales.

The short drive up the gravel road reveals a stunning view for miles. Non real access to the lighthouse but the vista keeps you riveted, nice breeze too.

Watch the sun set over the ocean on the west coast from here. Nicely elevated you can enjoy the amazing colours as the sun goes down. Best on a slightly cloudy day, then the sky is spectacular! Drive carefully on the way back to town...More
