A Message Regarding Current Restoration Works:
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is undertaking significant restoration works at Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse as part of its nationwide maintenance and conservation program for lighthouses across Australia. The restoration work is scheduled from September 2021 through to March 2022.
During this period the Lighthouse tower will be closed and guided tours will be suspended. The precinct, however, will remain open to visitors, who will continue to have access to the Lighthouse grounds and award-winning interpretive centre housed in one of the original lighthouse keepers’ cottages.
The Cape Leeuwin Café also remains open during this period of work.

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 new 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.
