Cape Leeuwin and Augusta

Distance Travelled: 97 NM
Steaming Time: 10 Hours

Today the Coral Adventurer will steam across the Geographe Bay and back into the Indian Ocean heading South. We will make a mid-morning stop at Augusta Harbour for a visit to the striking Cape Leeuwin lighthouse.

This significant Lighthouse is situated at the tip of a spectacular peninsula where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet - the most south-westerly point of Australia. As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a spectacular attraction and an excellent vantage point to view the powerful ocean and sea life including dolphins and whales.

We will enjoy a guided tour and learn how this famous landmark was constructed from local limestone in 1895, and is still a vital working lighthouse for vessels navigating the treacherous cape. Climb to the top of the tower, where a vast seascape will unfold before you and be awed by the crashing waves and the wilderness of the landscape. Walk the grounds and explore spectacular surroundings at this beautifully restored heritage site and we will enjoy lunch in the historic cafe and tea rooms.

Traditional custodians: Wardandi people

Our Story

Australia’s Pioneering Cruise Line
For over 30 years Coral Expeditions has had one purpose – taking small groups of like-minded explorers to the most remote parts of the world, with expert guidance and warm Australian hospitality. Coral Expeditions was founded by a fisherman with a passion for the sea. Then named Coral Princess Cruises, the small North Queensland based company explored the Great Barrier Reef and pioneered small ship expedition cruising to the Kimberley and Papua New Guinea. Today, Coral Expeditions has grown to include voyages to Tasmania, Islands of the South Pacific, New Zealand, and the Indonesian Archipelago. Our Australian crew provide warm hospitality and personal service on board. Shore-rich itineraries in remote locations allow our guests to be immersed in local cultures, get close to wildlife, and enjoy adventurous land and sea activities in safety. We invite you to celebrate 35 years of exploration with us.
