A beautiful place to watch the sunset or sunrise if your up that early. Two walk trails through the bush with several lookouts along the way so as to view the amazing beach and sea. For the more adventurous there is quite a difficult climb to a lovely little beach known as lovers cove

Rotary have done a fabulous job creating this walk trail , a choice of a short 1.2 km & 1.3km. The best southern ocean views of protected beaches , surf breaks, secluded white sandy hideaways, granite cliffs & more Located about 500m from Esperance town centre with easy access & parking

Nice view with a locator disk to see where things are located. Good view of the town from here. However other lookouts in the area are much nicer.

Good 360 degree views from this old lookout on a good vantage point of a granite headland overlooking the harbour. Signage to find it was surprisingly absent from Twilight Beach Road, which does not help tourists from other countries much - still it was bound to be at the highest point I guess.

we had the walk all to ourselves. we got to stop and watch the wedge-tail eagles hunting, the dragonflies sunning themselves and take some fantastic nature shots of water, nature and flora. it was a treat I'll do everytime we're in Esperance.

The lookout sits at the western end of the town and behind the grain port.It provides great views of the beaches to the east and the island to the south as well as views back to the town.The walk consists of some board walks, but most is on the granite stone that makes up the hill.

We did not go for a walk along the trail but went up to the look out, what a wonderful sight, you can see the whole of Esperance as well as the ocean and as far as the Pink Lake. Fantastic place to take photos from

Ok, so my friend and I cheated and only did the Rotary Lookout here however the views are fantastic - 360 degree views over the ocean and town was amazing and well worth the dozen or steps to the top.
