Bunbury Lighthouse

The primary purpose of a lighthouse is to provide navigational assistance to ships passing through. These structures are tall by default so that the ships can notice them, and they emit light to be easily noticed.

It is the perfect place to relax while watching the Sun fall out of sight. You will feel incredible calmness and tranquility whether you are alone or with somebody. And if you brought your love partner with you, it will be the perfect romantic moment, and the ideal opportunity to bond together while sharing a breathtaking view.

Not only the lighthouse is a sight worth seeing, but it provides amazing panoramic views of the ocean and the city. It is one of the best lookouts you can find in the area – it provides the necessary elevation, and the dolphins you can notice in the distance only improve the view.

It is not far away from the lighthouse, and many would argue that it offers an even better view. If you are looking for a bird’s eye view of the city and the ocean next to it, Marlston Hill Lookout should be on your must-visit list.

The lookout is ideal as it offers the perfect mixture of a sunset view combined with the feeling like you are flying over the city. The phenomenal colors, and the fact that the day is ending may get you thinking. But even if you do not have philosophical tendencies, it is still a beautiful place to stop and smell the roses, and realize that you should enjoy life more.
