The historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse at Augusta is situated at the most southwesterly tip of Australia. From here, you can literally witness the Indian and Southern Oceans meeting and splashing against each other. The famous landmark lighthouse is over 100 years old and retains its important function. The tower itself stands about 130 feet high from ground level and over 180 feet above sea level. Its piercing beam, with an intensity of one million candles, shines over the surrounding rugged sea and landscape for 26 nautical miles. Guided lighthouse tours are conducted daily, or you can peruse the visitor centre, café and shop and sip on a warm cappuccino in one of the heritage cottages overlooking Flinder’s Bay. The surrounding landscape of windswept meadows and surf pounding against rock is breathtaking.
