Definitely worth the trip down to this end of the Island. Stunning location. The guided tour was very informative and despite the crazy winds (which was expected) the view from the top of the lighthouse was absolutely breath-taking. Thank you for a great tour!

Apart from the interesting history of the place and all the photos, artefacts and buildings Cameron made the place come alive and we enjoyed it immensely

Worth the trip for the interesting history available to see in the information building as well as the surrounds, view etc. Basic refreshments available. Clean amenities.

We had a lovely afternoon visiting the lighthouse and enjoyed the amazing scenery. The passion and knowledge that the guide had on lighthouses in general and Cape Willoughby in particular was impressive. Unfortunately the cocky attitude and 'one-up-manship' mentality of the guiding staff undermined the experience.

Our trip to Cape Willoughby Lighthouse was well worth the bumpy road ride to get there (although a four wheel drive is best). The scenery is beautiful with great views and the tour of the lighthouse is well informed and genuine, thanks Quentin.
