  • We were not the only group that walked out that day. We had been to many light houses in NSW and Tasmania, they don’t charge people just to walk around the base. And their tour fees are lower. It woul...  more »

  • Been here last Nov as part of our road trip and stay at Dunsborough. As a geographer, this place holds so much meaning and it's just so fascinating to be here. This is the location where the Indian and the Southern Ocean meet and it's also the most South -West part of Australia Standing at the top of the lighthouse - admiring the vastness of the ocean and the spectacular form of the coastline due to the processes of weathering and erosion - there is an unspeakable joy particularly for those who appreciate nature. The entry to get into the lighthouse and the top of can be a little pricey But it's an amazing place for nature lovers, photographers who are keen to capture the beauty of this coastline or simply anyone who wants to rewind and relax while enjoying the scenery
  • We had a fantastic visit to the cape leeuwin lighthouse yesterday. My teenagers weren't too keen initially but loved it. It was so cool seeing where the two oceans meet. All of the staff here were really welcoming and friendly - including the cafe staff and tour guides. Aaron, our tour guide was great - very informative with an easy going nature. he was happy to answer all our questions. Highly recommend this interesting place for adults and kids alike.
  • Tour guide was fantastic - very clear, informative, and appropriately funny. Obviously very passionate about what he does and his community. The other staff and the shop were also great.
  • If you are down in Augusta this is a site that you need to see, a small Cafe and gift shop compliments the historic buildings. The lighthouse and historical plaques and audio guides are excellent. Check out the memorial to the sailors that lost their lives on the unforgiving Coast line. Lastly be sure to take the tour up the lighthouse itself.
  • The entry fee here is extremely high, and they can only get away with it because it's in the southwest corner of the country, so everyone wants to get in! I would have loved to take the family on the tour of the lighthouse, but the fee to get into the grounds was bad enough: it would have set us back $100 to get into the lighthouse itself. Instead, we did the tour of the lighthouse at Cape Naturaliste, and it was both excellent, and less than half the price.
