Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction. This historic lighthouse is the tallest on mainland Australia. It 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. 

From May to September the lighthouse transforms into one of the best land-based vantage points for spotting migrating whales.

The Interpretive Centre, housed within one of the original lighthouse 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 enjoy coffee or delicious light refreshments at the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Café.

A piece of history is worth the trip to see. The story of all the light keepers and the cottages built there is very interesting. Beautiful coastal views. It is best to get there early for a carport, though.

An interesting historical site located where the Southern and Indian oceans meet. It costs to enter the area, but you can visit the small museum and take a tour of the lighthouse. A beautiful spot, but be prepared for high winds most days.

Excellent tour of the light house, with an added bonus of a wonder around the grounds as well as, a sticky beak through the light house keeps house, which is now museum. We took the option of the guided tour of the light house and it was well worth it, being in one of the tallest light house in Australia and seeing the thickness of the walls, the number of stairs to the top, plus getting an understanding of the effort to build and support it over the years was great. We climbed to the just below the light and went out on the veranda or deck & the wind was strong enough, to even take a young lady out of Prince Andrew’s grasp, the force was amazing & it was only a mild day. It would be hard to believe somebody going out there in a gale. Overall it was a wonder tour, well worth doing.
