Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse

Galleries, Museums and Collections

On one of the great capes of the world stands mainland Australia’s tallest lighthouse – Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse.

The powerful Indian and Southern Oceans converge at this famous landmark. The historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, near Augusta, is situated at the most south westerly tip of Australia. This famous landmark is over 100 years old and remains an important working lighthouse and collection point for meteorological data.

Learn about the intriguing maritime history of the area, view fantastic marine life including dolphins, whales and seabirds and climb to the top to check out the wind speed.

Housed in the second of the lighthouse keeper’s cottages, the interpretive exhibition houses artefacts, short stories, interactive technology and a large-scale animated film, allowing visitors to encounter fascinating stories about the men, women and children who once lived at the tallest lighthouse in mainland Australia.

The Leeuwin Lighthouse Cafe offers coffee, scones and light meals. Browse the gift shop for souvenirs to take home.

Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is situated a leisurely 10 minutes drive south of Augusta.
