Unique checkered lighthouse with good see views of the Indian ocean. Great place for taking photos and a good place to go for a walk.

A bit scary at first when you walk up the stairs but it was so good to see bunburry from above. The wind is a bit hectic up the top

A steep clime to the top but very rewarding the view from there. Please put a little shop there to sell water of cold drinks.

An interesting lighthouse with black and white checks sitting high on the headland. The ocean below has interesting basalt rocks for those who are interested in geology. The area is worth a quick look but not as scenic as many other areas along the coast.

While it is not exactly a 'must-see', the lighthouse certainly catches the eye and is quite easy to spot from various parts of Bunbury, including a good view from Marlston Hill Lookout. If you take a walk from Back Beach to Marlston Hill you'll go...More
