1858 Cape Borda Lighthouse
This uniquely square lighthouse is located within the Flinders Chase National Park on the north western corner of the Island.
It is perched on cliffs overlooking Investigator Strait and has a very interesting history.
To explore the maritime history of the area you can take a tour of the lightstation. The lighthouse area features a restored signal cannon, a museum and kiosk where refreshments and souvenirs are available. Don't miss the daily cannon firing on the 12.30pm tour.
After exploring the lighthouse, enjoy a stroll along one of the walking trails around the park including the Cliff Top Hike. This short trail through a picturesque rock garden takes you to a stone lookout that provides an ideal vantage point for spotting whales and dolphins.
There is also a self-guided nature drive along Shackle Road between Cape Borda Lightstation and Flinders Chase Visitor Centre where you can explore the rugged western end of the island.
Why not extend your visit and stay in one of the historic Lightkeepers' Cottages.
