  • 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.
  • Cape Leeuwin is one of the most scenically spectacular places in Margaret River. The main attraction to the cape is the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. The lighthouse is located at the very end of the cape where it sits on a narrow peninsula of granite jutting out into the ocean. The lighthouse was built in the 19th century and it remains to this day as an important nautical site as well as an important meteorological landmark from which weather data is collected. Its light has the intensity of over one million candles and can be seen for 26 nautical miles, or 48 kilometres.
  • Magical place, very quiet and reflective. The views off the west coast are stunning.
