Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse

Take in stunning views of the Indian Ocean and spot dolphins and migrating whales from the upper balcony of this working lighthouse.

Wind your way to the top of Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, a lofty landmark that's more than 100 years old. The 19-metre (62-feet) aid to navigation sits on a hill that’s about 100 metres (328 feet) above sea level. Relish the spectacular views of the Indian Ocean from the viewing platform and learn about the tower’s history.

The lighthouse was built in 1903, after several shipwrecks had floundered in nearby Geographe Bay. The tall, white structure was built from limestone quarried from nearby Bunker Bay and it is still in operation today.

To get inside the tall building, join one of the guided tours that leave every half hour during the day. Your route to the top of the structure is via the 59 steps of the spiral staircase. During your visit, you will see the inner workings of the lighthouse, hear stories of shipwrecks and be told about the maritime history of the area.

From the top balcony, enjoy views of the Indian Ocean, the Geographe Bay coastline, Cape Naturaliste and Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. Upon leaving the building, go over to the old lighthouse-keeper’s cottages, one of which has been turned into an interpretive centre.

Several walking trails lead from the lighthouse to bays and beaches of the cape. Stroll among the wild flowers and admire the ocean vistas. From September to December you may be able to see migrating whales as they pass through the area. You can view them from a platform and shelter.

Reach the lighthouse via a 15-minute drive along Cape Naturaliste Road from Dunsborough, a distance of 13 kilometres (8 miles). On-site parking is available for a fee.

Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is open every day except Christmas Day. Admission charges apply with discounts for senior citizens and children aged between 5 and 16 years. There is no charge for children under the age of 5.
