  • Great views, interesting history, get there early or pre book the walk up the lighthouse, cafe, ok prices, can get very busy
  • Didn't manage to get up to the light house as we reached there late. The view is great and you can see the Indian ocean and Southern ocean at the same time.
  • Very windy and mind refreshing place. The place is great and the view is magnificent.
  • Stunning views from the top of the lighthouse (one of the largest lighthouses in Australia) ... great tour guide and nice short walks around with amazing coastal views.
  • The most south-westerly point on mainland Australia. Worth visiting. We took the self-guided precinct audio tour which is very informative.
