  • The winds here are gusty, so be careful with your head wears. Scenery was awesome too. My family and I were enjoying so much with the views, as well as some interesting facts and history of this lighthouse. Our tour guide- Paul, was exceptionally friendly, too. And, don't forget to check out the retired water wheel which is located at the first junction on your way out from the car park.
  • Could not find as expected. Whatever you see from ground, same view from the top of lighthouse. Spending more for ticket is not a good idea. You can't distinguish southern and indian ocean meeting. It look like a fantasy. For the people used to visiting beaches, I find a normal scene. Ticket too expensive for the normal view. Still the lighthouse is the tallest in WA.
  • Super place to see. Hundreds of steps to climb to the top, but what a view. Indian ocean meets southern ocean. Informative audio tour. Lovely little cafe with great coffee. Rest rooms and free parking
  • Amazing spot. I greatly enjoyed my tour up on the tower watching Southern and Indian Ocean waves merging. Great guy who led the tour!
  • Nice little place with great view of the place where the Indian and Antarctic Oceans meet. Worthwhile to pay to go up the tower for the great view and a little history. There is also a little cafe to grab a bite.
