  • Great lighthouse and surrounds. The self guided walking tour is good and inexpensive. would rate it 5 if one of the buildings was opened to see how people lived in such inhospitable environment. The cafe has excellent coffee. The story boards are interesting and it was fascinating to see where the two oceans meet (Indian and Southern)
  • This was our second visit although first 5 years ago. I am pleased to say that nothing has changed and it's just as lovely as I remembered. We had a guided tour of the lighthouse and our guide was 1st class. The views from the top was fantastic. The cafe was very good and had a good selection of pies. Would certainly recommend a visit and guided tour.
  • Fantastic views from top of the lighthouse. Paid the extra and took the lift up to the top which made it so much easier. The tour gide was really good and very informative.
  • Well worth the effort of getting there and doing the climb up the stairs. Our guide was excellent. Work was being done to improve the facilities including coffee (I believe).
  • The Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is located on the headland of Cape Leeuwin, the most south-westerly point on the mainland of the Australian Continent, in the state of Western Australia. The foundation stone was laid by Sir John Forrest in 1895. There is an excellent panoramic view from the base of the lighthouse, where the Southern Ocean meets the Indian Ocean.
