Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse

Lighthouses

Overview

Only 13 kilometres from Dunsborough, the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is one of the most popular attractions in the Geographe Bay and Margaret River Region. Easier than most lighthouses to climb, the lighthouse tower, and the restored cottages reveal the fascinating maritime history of the Cape region. This beautifully restored heritage precinct includes the period-themed Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage Cafe, offering delicious coffee, refreshments and light lunches.

Great view but not a heap to look at here. Definitely worth a visit, you don't really need more than an hour. The staff there were great and more than happy to answer questions.

An absolute beautiful lighthouse and grounds, steeped in history. Look out to see where two oceans meet. Have lunch in the FABULOUS cafe (gosh that homemade pie was delicious). Great guides and gift shop too.

The lighthouse itself is not very impressive. The cape divide two oceans apart which is amazing. There is a fee to enter the precinct, and another to enter the lighthouse. Nice restaurant outside too. The view of the sea is much better than just the lighthouse.

Overpriced lighthouse entry fee. Beautiful views and scenery. Seeing whales off the coast made the trip on a cool and blustery day worth while. An easy way to pass an hour or two with friends or family.

Great little tour of a very unique lighthouse. Easy for all ages. Offers the history of the lighthouse and great views of the Indian Ocean and if you're lucky a breaching whale!
