The Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is one of the most popular attractions in the region. Visitors to the top balcony of the lighthouse tower are rewarded with breathtaking ocean views. With an easy climb of 59 stairs, this lighthouse is accessible even for small children.

The Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and cottages reveal the fascinating maritime history of the Cape region. Hear tales of ships wrecked off the formidable coastline and the hardships of life as a lighthouse keeper, and gain insight into the functions of this working lighthouse. Discover more about native flora and fauna and the importance of the local ocean currents - also used by humpback whales during their migration and breeding season.

The new observation platform at the base of the lighthouse tower enables universal access to sweeping ocean views and great photo opportunities, while the landscaped lawns and nautical-themed playground will entice you to sit and enjoy this wonderful heritage precinct.
