Central to town,easy access,free parking makes the lookout the best way to view and film Bunbury from an excellent elevated position.You need to be reasonably fit as you have to accend up a spiral staircase,you can stop before the top.

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.

This look out is located at the top of a hill near the centre of town. Apart room the great view when you finally get to the top, the exercise is also a value add component of the climb.
