Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse

Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is situated at the tip of a spectacular peninsula where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet – at the most south-westerly point of Australia.

As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction. 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.

Your guide will then lead you on a half-hour tour to the top of the tower, where a vast seascape will unfold before you. Be awed by the crashing waves and the wilderness of the landscape.

Before you climb the lighthouse, be sure to allow time for the self-guided audio tour of the precinct, available in English, German, French, Malay and Chinese. You will hear in-depth commentary on everything from tragic shipwrecks, to the flora of the cape. Complete your visit by relaxing over light refreshments at the Cape Leeuwin Cafe.
