We visited the lighthouse, thinking that it would be a leisurely walk up to the lighthouse but didn't expect that there was a fee to pay to walk up to it. We chose to stay around the visitor centre, enjoyed the nice scenery and lovely winter sun 😀

We just wanted to drive up and have a quick look at the little white lighthouse at the end of the long winding road up Cape Naturaliste (which you used to be able to do back in the day) but when we got there the road was blocked and you had to pay $4 per person to walk up to... More

It was a terrific opportunity for a self paced tour of some important local history. The booked tour of the light house itself was amazing. Beware of the upcoming workout for your knees walking up those stairs!!! Managed to see some whales in the distance and really enjoyed the view of the two oceans meeting.

Our group had just missed a tour but couldn't wait long enough for the next one. They put on an extra tour just for our group. It was interesting and I learned some things about lighthouses I didn't know before ! If you're in the area it's worth it.

Amazing, been coming to Dunsborough for years and today decided to take the Grandkids to this place. Really interesting place to visit and our guide did a great job . Just a really enjoyable morning even though the weather was not great.

Although there are not many steps to reach the top (59) there are great views over the Indian Ocean and adjacent national park as the viewing deck some 120m above sea level. Insignificant when compared to Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. Cost of $14 per adult and $7 for a child is a bit pricy. Worth a visit but definitely not on... More

Fun visit to a real life working lighthouse. Definitely worth a visit although the fee to into the lighthouse is a bit high for a family. The little house has plenty of interesting stuff

Can you believe it's $14 AUD (for an adult) to take the tour inside the lighthouse? But it's $4 AUD just to WALK AROUND ITS BASE!? What happened to a national park being free + accessible to the public? This part of Australia is turning into America by trying to make a dollar off of everything. Since everything is exorbitant...
