The Margaret River Lighthouses are a pair of beautifully restored old-time lighthouses that are still functional. During the tour, learn about the life of the lighthouse keepers back in the day, and the significance of the lighthouse in saving marine vessels from the rocky shores.
One of the most iconic lighthouses of Western Australia, the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is open for the public to climb. With about 59 steps to the top, it's an easy climb to a gorgeous coastline view. The lighthouse also has a new observation deck for those who don’t want to climb to the top but would still like to enjoy the views.
Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is famous for being the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia at 57 ft and dates back to 1895. This lighthouse is also made of limestone and has withstood the test of time, with some renovations. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse to watch the ocean and the marine wildlife, or even to just feel the breeze.
