The Thomas Carter Lookout is 311m above sea level and is one of the highest points in Cape Range National Park. Here you can enjoy views of the ocean, both west and east over the gulf. Picnic tables are located just before the lookout. The lookout is the start and end of the Badjirrijirra Trail, a moderately difficult 8km loop trail traversing the top of Cape Range. The trail winds its way through rocky gullies, small gorges and open spinifex bushland. The walk also offers stunning views of Shothole Canyon and Exmouth Gulf. The trail has steep gradients and rough uneven surfaces. WARNING: The conditions of Cape Range are harsh (the temperature can soar to over 50ºC in summer). Walks should only be attempted between April and September. Wear suitable footwear and clothing, carry plenty of water and notify a friend and park ranger before leaving.
