Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse

Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse

Soaring views from the tallest lighthouse on Australia’s mainland.
The Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction in Your Margaret River Region. This historic lighthouse is situated just south of Augusta, 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.

It’s also one of the best land-based vantage points for spotting whales from May – September!

The Interpretive Centre, housed within one of the original lighthouses 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.

Visitors can enjoy a coffee or delicious light refreshments in the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Cafe.
