About

The Cape Nelson Lighthouse tour takes you back in time into the world of the lighthouse keeper from the inception of the lighthouse in 1884.

See the cottages in which the lighthouse keepers lived and climb all of the 124 steps to the top of the lighthouse viewing the Capes from 32 meters above the ground.

The tour guides have extensive knowledge of both the history of the precinct itself, the maritime history of the region and many aspects of the natural history of the area. Hear stories of the shipwrecks that lie in the depths of the Southern ocean off Cape Nelson.

The one Hour tours of the Cape Nelson Lighthouse are conducted every day, except Christmas Day, at 11:30am and 2:00pm or by pre arranged times.
