As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction. This historic lighthouse is situated at the most south-westerly point of Australia, at the tip of a spectacular peninsula - where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet.
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. 

It's also one of the best land-based vantage points for spotting whales from May - September! 

The Interpretive Centre, housed within one of the original lighthouses keepers' cottages, is an outstanding interactive experience that celebrates the history and lives of the numerous lighthouse keepers who were custodians of this rugged coastline. 

Visitors can also enjoy a coffee or delicious light refreshments in the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Café Friday - Wednesday (closed Thursday).

Amazing place. You should definitely visit. When we went it was going under major renovations. So please call or confirm with them before you go there to not end up disappointed. Breath taking views. Ample parking. Kids can visit the museum also. Very nice short movie to watch in the museum.

We just loved the place. It's a short-walk from entrance to light house. The walk was so enjoyable. You have both ticketing option With Lighthouse entry or without lighthouse entry, fees are different. That's good. The walk to light house was so enjoyable. Lightkeeper's house to know more about the history and amazed with collections (we didn't have time to spend more but make sure you do). Most importantly, the viewing platform was simply the best of all.

Visited lighthouse when it was under repair so had scaffolding around but was worth a brief visit. Beautiful location, very windybut clean spot. There is a track nearby to see rocks, signs to beware of snakes so supervise your kids.

We had a great time at the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse even though it was under construction there was still quite a bit to do the set up of videos in the museum/ old cottage were very well done and so was the signage with information. The views were breathtaking and there was lots of parking available. The staff was lovely and also suggested other places for us to go and visit!
