Tours

Overview

Situated at the most south-westerly point of Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia. Cape Leeuwin is also the point where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean. It's also one of the best land-based vantage points for spotting whales from May - September!


More information

The historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse at Augusta is situated at the tip of a spectacular peninsula where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet - the most south-westerly point of Australia. Take a trip through maritime history and learn how this famous landmark was constructed from local limestone in 1895, and is still a vital working lighthouse for vessels navigating the treacherous cape. As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction in Your Margaret River Region.

For the bird enthusiasts!

This area is a favourite haunt of the Rock Parrot. The Cape is an excellent place to go sea birding in winter. Southern and Northern Giant–winged Petrel, Cape and Great–winged Petrel, Black-browed, Shy and Yellow-nosed Albatross, Wilson’s Storm-Petrel and Australian Gannet have all been sighted here!

The small Islands just off the coast are reserves for breeding sea birds such as Little Penguin, Flesh-footed and Little Shearwaters and Bridled and Crested Terns, which all form colonies here.

One of the best places I visited in the area. The lighthouse climb was easy enough and had amazing views. The guide was full of interesting facts and was very knowledgeable. Lots of signage around the grounds providing information and history on the area. While waiting for a guided climb we grabbed a snack at the cafe. Definitely worth a look

Amazing lighthouse, well worth the tour to the top, on windy days you better hold on otherwise you'll get blown off. It's a significant place in Australia's history and the tour guides are very helpful. Highly recommended!

Great education boards. Rugged beauty. Meeting of oceans protector of shipping traffic, reminder of 21 ships wrecked before and most southwest point of Australia.. Worth a visit.

Understandably a long trip to get here but definitely worth the drive. There is a fee to get in, do note it can be pretty windy out here so bring a Cardigan when touring about. Great place for kids, and a Cafe to finish the tour off.

Family price for a walk around the lighthouse, 2 adults, 3 children $19. Seriously overpriced. Nice lighthouse and admirable that money is going towards restorations, but have to say value for money is questionable. Charge more for lighthouse tours if you must but for a walk around the grounds $19 for a family (yes a lot of families have 3 kids these days not 2) is over the top.
