Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Cafe is located within one of the original Lighthouse Keeper's cottages built in 1895. Take a step back in time and enjoy a freshly baked scone just as those wickies and families would have during the Victorian era. Enjoy the view from the enclosed verandah or grab something to go.
A delightful coffee shop offering a selection of sweet treats including HUGE freshly baked scones with homemade jam and whipped cream, locally made cookies, or delicious gluten-free caramel slice. Or perhaps tuck into some savoury delights like a homemade soup paired with a cheese & spinach scone or a simple pie accompanied by a freshly prepared salad with chutney - all whilst taking in the dynamic ever-changing weather the beautiful cape throws at you. 

Blackboard specials change daily. 

Ice-creams, snacks and cold drinks are available.

Amazing experience doing the tour up the lighthouse. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Had coffee and toasted sandwiches at the cafe and it was very nice. Very friendly and pleasant staff. This is a must do when visiting Augusta. Just be aware it gets very windy and can be quite cold up on top of the lighthouse.

Tallest lighthouse in mainland Australia at 39m and stands on the meeting point between two oceans. If you’re all the way down here it’d be silly not to include this in your itinerary as there isn’t much else in Augusta anyways. Tours are $21 for adults and run every 30min or so. There’s the option to get onto the grounds for $7.50 but only the full tour will allow you to enter the lighthouse and it’s definitely worth it. Just make sure you have some warm clothes/a windbreaker cause the winds can get pretty intense.

Meeting of two oceans - Indian and Southern - beautiful location for a stunning lighthouse. Loved visiting here and going through the keeper's cottage. The scones are superior to any previously enjoyed.

The place where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean. This is the most south western point in the Australian continent. The tour of the lighthouse is well worth taking as it provides spectacular views over the ocean and coastline. A guide takes you on the tour and provides a very comprehensive overview of how the lighthouse has operated over its lifetime including up to the present day. However, be prepared to walk up and down 176 steps. Cost of the tour is $21 for adults.
