An interesting contrast with Cape Leeuwin. This one is not as tall but has excellent views due to the height of the Cape on which it is situated. It is a less strenuous climb for those who are less mobile.

There is always something mysterious about a lighthouse sitting out on a forlorn spot, such a lonely life but such an important beacon of life that sailors rely on for their safety, We took the tour of the lighthouse built in 1903 on a 100 metre bluff overlooking Geographie Bay. The tours go every 30 minutes and our guide was... More

Did not go up the lighthouse and chose to walk the trails instead. Trails are easy to find and the views are spectacular.

We found this a bit disappointing but we only paid for the base access which allowed us to walk around the base of the lighthouse but because of the high vegetation and fences you cannot see much of the panorama of the headland. Cape Leeuwin was very good.

Didn't go to light house - went on couple of the walking trails - these were very good with distances to suit most abilities, although some are steep and can be difficult if hot. The directions at the start are not very clear as to the actual location of the start of the different trails. The tea-room has a very... More

It's a very small lighthouse. It is located on top of the hill but a bit far from the water. In a sunny and clear day the view is still nice though. Worth the visit only if you are already in the area for something else.

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
