About
The historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is situated at the most south-westerly point of Australia, the tip of a spectacular peninsula where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet. As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction. Visitors take a trip through maritime history and learn how this famous landmark was constructed from local limestone in 1895, and still functions as a vital working lighthouse for vessels navigating the treacherous cape. The guided tour takes visitors to the top of the tower, where a vast seascape of crashing waves and wild rocky shoreline unfolds. An 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. Between the months of May and September whales are often sighted from the tower as they migrate along the coastline.

    Two oceans meet
    We planned on going to Jewel cave but just went to the cafe where we had a good coffee and went on to Leeuwin lighthouse where we had a walk around and visited the museum. Great spot on a sunny day but it was a bit breezy so didn’t fancy going up. Well worth visiting on a sunny day as great views of the Indian / Southern Oceans and things to look at.

    The most southwestern point of Australia - just go because you can.
    This is a great spot just to say I've been to the most southwestern point of Australia. It was a hot day in WA so travelling down here was a little cooler but it is pretty windy. We weren't organised and didn't book a tour of the lighthouse so be better than us and book in advance. :). Great buildings with historical references. Worth the trip.

    OLD LIGHTHOUSE WITH SPECTACULAR VIEW
    The Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is located a few kilometers South of Augusta, WA. It was built in 1895 and sits on a bluff overlooking the place where the Indian Ocean meets The Southern Sea. You have to take a tour to go to the top of the lighthouse so we skipped that and went to the interesting museum in the old lightkeepers house.

It was sunny when we arrived for our booked tour.
The wind was significant and had the flags flying at attention!
We had a short wait while the previous tour was in session.
We used or time to walk around the lighthouse and take in the information.
Our tour guide was full of information and history about the lighthouse, which was complimented by "The Lightkeeper's Cottage Interpretive Centre".

We didn't have the leg strength to take the challenging climb to the top, happy to view the exterior and hear the stories of its importance to shipping in the rough seas beyond. Enjoyed viewing the various buildings and hearing/reading the history of each and marvelled at the tenacity and contributions of the early occupants. Bitterly cold wind on the day, the warmth of the cafe welcoming on arrival and afterwards.

Took the tour and climbed to the top of the lighthouse. The tour is excellent and it explains the operation of the light house a hundred years back.

A lovely spot with excellent coastal views: a short walk can be enjoyed as well as lighthouse tours if you so choose. Worth the drive out here.

What an incredible place. We climbed 276 steps to the top to see the South and West meet. We were told the lighthouse could fit into Jewel Cave, which is incredible given it is the largest lighthouse on mainland Australia. It is well worth the tour and we suggest you go earlier to see the interactive display in one of the original cottages. We arrived for the last tour of the day so missed trying out the cafe which looked a fantastic place to have lunch and watch the tumultuous waves.

We took the guided tour of the lighthouse with a very enthusiastic guide. He talked about the history of the area, the need for the lighthouse and how it was constructed and run. We climbed the 176 steps to the top and braved the wind to stand on the outdoor platform. It was a good vantage point to look out over headland one way, and the meeting of two oceans the other way (Indian and Southern oceans). Informative tour.
