Roger, it's the base of a WWII radar scanner which served as early warning for the 'Potshot' establishment down near southern Exmouth Gulf (about 45 kays south). There were a couple of them set up around the Cape but this was probably the most important one. It was damaged during a severe cyclone just after the war. The scanning antenna lay nearby on the ground for many years and was only removed relatively recently. The whole lookout area has been cleaned up and developed into a fine and interesting place to visit.
Thanks for the kind comment..

A radar scanner, that makes sense, Jock. Thanks for the info.

A lovely scene you have captured here, Jock! These relics make such great subjects not only to photograph against the changing beauty of the natural environment but also as opportunities to connect people who visit with the local history of a place, and thereby give them an added sense of connection.
I really like that new style of interpretive panel, that we see in many places these days. So tough, and when they weather, they still look kind of in character.
Those panels are good aren't they?! They pack a lot of info on a few boards here Caroline. Thank you..
Perfectly done dear friend!
Tasha, thank you for the kind comment and Lk. Best regards, Jock.
Excellent shot, the image is very beautiful.
I like it greetings from Egypt.
