Took a morning walk around the various tracks around the lighthouse. The tracks are easy to walk around, yet there are enough hills or sandy parts to still give you a good workout. We'll signposted and stunning scenery.

The tour of the lighthouse was very informative as well as providing a 360 degree view of the area. Our guide kept us informed of the history of the lighthouse as well as the local area. Its well worth a visit

It's an interesting sight but I didn't like the fact that you had to pay an admittance fee to simply walk up to it and just see a small part of the light house. To get the full tour you would have to pay significantly more. I also felt that the entrance to it was very poorly sign posted. We... More

For those un afraid of heights , the view is said to be amazing. Very informative and a rare opportunity to see the working lighthouse. A tad on the expensive side , but cannot be viewed otherwise

We've visited lots of lighthouses in our time and this one was a bit disappointing. Its not that big or close to the coast and the views aren't that spectacular. For this reason, we didn't pay the rather large amount to go up and inside, $10 for a family pass to walk up to the lighthouse and see about. Not... More

The lighthouse is one of the main attractions when visiting Dunsborough. Its approx. A 10 min car ride from the centre of town and once your there you will have the option to an entry pass to the lighthouse or a guided tour with entry into the lighthouse. We chose only a entry pass, and after a 2 min walk... More

There is a great trail that starts at Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. It is a very gentle trail that is either paved/seal coated or board walk. Where we walked it was wheelchair accessible. We did two sections of the trail, the views were good, and the plants and flower unique. The only short coming was access from the trail to the... More

And a small one. They charge you for visiting so think twice before going there. The nature is nice and there are some hiking paths with the ocean as a scenery. If it's season (summer) you might see whales.

The lighthouse is not the main attraction to us - the walks around the lighthouse definitely were. They were on the quite easy side, and we chose one that went past the beach. Make sure to stay on the pre-stepped paths through the dunes, because the ecosystem is not just enchanting - it is also extremely fragile.
