Visit: Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, 1267 Cape Naturaliste Road Naturaliste, Dunsborough, Western Australia 6281 Australia
Your guide will provide you with a fascinating insight into the functions of this working lighthouse. You’ll take a step back in time as you hear tales of ships wrecked off the formidable coastline, and the hardships of life as a lighthouse keeper. Learn about the maritime navigation systems used and the importance of the local ocean currents – which are used by humpback whales during migration and the breeding season. You will discover more about our native flora and fauna, and once at the top balcony be rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, Cape Naturaliste, Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and the beautiful Geographe Bay coastline.
Allow extra time after your tour to enjoy the walk around the beautiful heritage precinct. Take in the stunning ocean views from the new observation platform at the base of the lighthouse tower - the perfect place for photographing the magnificent ocean vistas and the surrounding national park. Finish off your visit with a coffee and home-made refreshments at the beautifully restored, period-themed Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage Café.
