Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse in Augusta

CAPE LEEUWIN LIGHTHOUSE

Where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet

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

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.

As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction. There are regular sightings of dolphins and you may even spot whales migrating between May and September.

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.

Your guide will then lead you 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. Complete your visit by relaxing over refreshments at the Cape Leeuwin Cafe.
