On this Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Guided Tour, your guide will take you to the top of the tower, where you will be treated to a breathtaking view of the sea. The thundering waves and the vastness of the terrain will astound you.
The historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is located at the tip of a beautiful peninsula where the Southern and Indian Oceans collide.
Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, located at Australia’s most south-westerly point, on one of the world’s great capes. This lighthouse is a must-see site for everyone visiting the area. Learn how this historic landmark was built from local limestone in 1895 and is still a key operational lighthouse for vessels traversing the perilous coast on a journey through nautical history.
The history and lives of the several lighthouse keepers who were stewards of this rough coastline are commemorated in a new Interpretive Centre situated in one of the original lighthouse keepers’ cottages. Visitors can learn intriguing details about the men, women, and children who previously lived at Australia’s tallest lighthouse through artefacts and stories, interactive technology, and a large-scale animated film.
