Interesting, comical tour provided by Sean. Worth the drive to the most southern tip of mainland Australia and worth walking up the near 200 steps to the top!!

The lighthouse rangers were fabulous and so knowledgeable. Managed our large group of 32 students and 4 adults with ease and flexibility around the grounds and up the lighthouse. Thanks for making this experience so enjoyable.

A great place for sightseeing when you are in the area (Augusta) and get to see where the two ocean meets as well as the lighthouse, recommended.
