Hello Aileen W
I am sorry , the lighthouse is under Maritime Law and they do not permit anyone under 4 years of age from climbing the lighthouse stairs . There is a great tour of the lighthouse grounds as well as a fabulous café that one of you could sit in with the baby while the other does the tour . Then you could swap over , I hope this helpful for you , and you enjoy your Margaret River Region experience .
