If you time your visit to coincide with a full moon, make your way to the best vantage point and view the marvel in all of its beauty. There have been some amazing photography incorporating the scene.
- The old Onslow Ruins: These relic buildings including the old gaol, give insight into the town before the townsite was moved. The Good Shed Museum is heritage listed and houses Onslow’s charming historical pieces.

- Walking and Heritage Trails: From the Heritage Trail to the Ian Blair Memorial Walkway, a really popular and natural walkway from Beadon Point Lookout to Sunset Beach. There are many attractions such as the termite Mound Viewing Area where you can look at these creative insect homes and wonder at how much work these busy little creatures must be to make such huge nests.
