What to Expect

The historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse at Augusta is situated at the tip of a spectacular peninsula where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet – the most south-westerly point of Australia.


Take a trip through maritime history and learn how this famous landmark was constructed from local limestone in 1895 and is still a vital working lighthouse for vessels navigating the treacherous cape. As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction in the Margaret River Region.


Your guide will lead you up to the top of the tower while discussing aspects of the lighthouse's vital role in maritime safety, and interesting tales of its construction. Upon stepping out onto the tower balcony a vast seascape unfolds, of crashing waves, rocky outcrops and rugged coastline. 


You can also visit the Interpretive Centre, housed in one of the original lighthouse keepers' cottages. It's an outstanding interactive experience that celebrates the history and lives of the numerous lighthouse keepers who were custodians of this rugged cape.


The tour takes 30 minutes, but allow extra time for the Interpretive Centre and to explore the grounds. Visitors can also enjoy a coffee or delicious light refreshments in the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Cafe.

Since there are quite a few steps involved in most of the tours, comfortable enclosed shoes are recommended, however, you can still do the tours in thongs/flip flops/jandals if you feel you can.

Do bring a camera, and water if you need it. Depending on the weather; sunscreen, a hat and/or wet weather gear may be required. A jacket is sometimes required at the lighthouses, even in the summer months, as the wind at the Capes can be quite ‘invigorating’!

The guide leading the tour will not take the group straight up to the top of the tower. The steps are staged, with rest stops at landings along the way as required. With a reasonable amount of determination and a functional set of knees, almost anyone can get to the top!

Between June and September, Humpback and Southern Right Whales migrate north along our coastline and are frequently seen in Flinders Bay, Augusta. During these months, and when the ocean conditions are favourable, the whales are regularly sighted from the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse.

From September through to early December the whales make their return migration; back to Antarctica, this time with their young in tow. They stop to rest in the waters of Geographe Bay during this time, and can often be seen from the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse (weather permitting) as they relax and play, before resuming their journey south.
