This stunning lighthouse is about 13km from Dunsborough and is a must-see near Yallingup. Bunker Bay limestone was used to build Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse in 1903. There are views of the Indian Ocean, Cape Naturaliste, Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and Geographe Bay from its highest point of 123 meters. Chance Brothers of England created the 14-foot diameter lamp in England. That the steps are still standing shows their brilliant craftsmanship. Do a lighthouse tour is a great idea
Do enjoy a tour to watch Whales:
Dunsborough’s whale season runs from early September to late November/December. Whale migration travels via Geographe Bay, while Southern Right Whales leave with their young in October.
See these stunning marine giants from late September through early November. Point Piquet on Cape Naturaliste is the best place to observe them. Whales frequent this deep waterway every day. We’ve spotted them off Meelup Beach also. There are tours with professional drivers in Dunsborough and they can also take you to the Jetty and wait for your boat tour to see the whales
The greatest way to see these magnificent marine giants is on a thrilling whale-watching trip. You may view dolphins, marine birds, seals, and whales on this boat cruise. Cruise on a huge boat with few people for the finest views, including morning tea.
