Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The lighthouse tower (only the tower) is currently closed – as it is undergoing major restoration works which are expected to be completed by 10 May 2019.

The heritage grounds and cottages have already been beautifully restored and are open. Guides onsite will explain the lighthouse history.

The Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is one of the most popular attractions in the Margaret River Region and an easy climb of 59 stairs makes this lighthouse accessible even for small children.

Only 12 kilometres from the town of Dunsborough, the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and cottages reveal the fascinating maritime history of the Cape region.

Half-hour guided tours provide a captivating insight into the functions of this working lighthouse with visitors to the top balcony of the lighthouse tower rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, Cape Naturaliste, the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and the beautiful Geographe Bay coastline.

The new observation platform at the base of the lighthouse tower enables universal access to sweeping ocean views and great photo opportunities.

The beautifully restored Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage Cafe serves delicious cakes, coffee and light refreshments and the landscaped lawns and nautical-themed playground will entice you to sit and enjoy this wonderful heritage precinct.
