  • Interesting lighthouse. Significant because of its location on the south western must point in Australia. Is right on the joining of Indian and Southern oceans. Stone construction. The is a tour of the lighthouse running every hour with good views from the top. Small shop with souvenirs and a cafe for some basic refreshments
  • Amazing view and super nice staff (Bruce). Good price for the family combo ticket (jewel cave and the lighthouse). We had a really good time
