4.3/5 based on 160 reviews on the web
A location for the 2010 romantic drama "South Solitary," Cape Nelson lighthouse is the picture perfect image of a harrowing white tower at the edge of the sea. The beacon rises above heath covered hills among cottages that offer accommodations. Completed in 1884, the lighthouse is the savior of many a seaman sailing along the coast of Australia. It still stands as a monument to lighthouse keepers who have spent their evenings keeping the lamp lit.

  • A truly amazing location. The lighthouse is one of my favourite Victorian lights. The cliffs are stunning. A must see.
  • Beautiful part of the world. Good walk tracks and the lighthouse is kept in great condition.
  • It's a lovely old lighthouse that's a bit of a drive out to. Whilst it's not a long stop, the small cafe is lovely, and you have some beautiful views. Lovely to drive out to (just watch out, it can be pretty windy).
  • Incredible location to watch the sun set! The cliffs are amazing.
  • Beautiful spot and great place to stay
