an easy drive to the cape with a side road leading to the lighthouse. Also, if you have the time & inclination, no pun intended, there is a track up to an aboriginal site signposted off the road.

Drove up there this afternoon to admire the views from the lighthouse. Stunning coastline and despite signs saying there is an entry fee to the National Park, we could see no where to pay.

Well worth the short trip down the metal road for both the Lighthouse and the Rocky Coastline. Views for miles

We drove to the lighthouse close to dusk, and it has interesting views along the coast. It is not open for tours etc. The roads are unmade but in reasonable condition. You get better views from Stanley a short drive along the coast.

Didn't take a tour of this lighthouse but we drove down to see it and had a picnic. There are great views from both here and the nearby headland before you drive down the road. Worth driving too if on your way to/from Stanley

A fairly secluded place to visit, not a lot of people around so you get it to yourself which is nice. Easy hike to the lighthouse, stellar views, check out the aboriginal art in the caves nearby too and it is an hour well spent.

The views from Rocky Cape are spectacular. The rock formations are fascinating and unusual. It is well worth the visit just to wonder at the rocks as well as the walking tracks. The Aboriginal caves nearby are also well worth the visit. It is definitely...More
