  • Did a day out to the cape and decided to have a look. Unfortunately, the lighthouse was being renovated so we were unable to go inside. Still, it was worth a look.

  • More than 20 ships were wrecked at Cape Leeuwin before the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse commenced operations, and only one since. The lighthouse was opened by the Premier of Western Australia, Sir John...

  • Amazing place. You should definitely visit. When we went it was going under major renovations. So please call or confirm with them before you go there to not end up disappointed. Breath taking views. Ample parking. Kids can visit the museum also. Very nice short movie to watch in the museum.
  • Visited lighthouse when it was under repair so had scaffolding around but was worth a brief visit. Beautiful location, very windybut clean spot. There is a track nearby to see rocks, signs to beware of snakes so supervise your kids.
