Time and tides have not diminished Victoria’s outstanding lighthouses. Some offer accommodation, all have spectacular views and each one tells a surprising tale from the history book. Whether curious, hungry or adventurous, a journey to these whitewashed wonders is well rewarded.
Cape Otway and Apollo Bay
Breathtaking coastlines, dramatic cliff faces, deep valleys of tall forest and fern-clad gullies, and spectacular waterfalls all feature here in Cape Otway and Apollo Bay.
Point Hicks Lighthouse
Situated deep within Croajingolong National Park, the Point Hicks Lighthouse now offers a unique holiday experience for those who want to stay in one of the keepers cottages, which are now comfortable, self-contained holiday accommodation.
Cape Schanck offers stunning landscapes; the mystery of dramatic volcanic features, unspoilt and wild beaches and scenic walking tracks with spectacular ocean views. It is also a site of rich European history with its heritage listed lighthouse precinct.
Anglesea and Aireys Inlet
Discover stunning coastal vistas, quaint gorges, waterfalls and tall eucalypt forest. Surf the iconic swells of Bells Beach, walk and birdwatch among the flowering heath at Anglesea and snorkel or dive off Point Addis.
Wilsons Promontory Lightstation
The perfect place to witness the Prom’s rugged coastal environment while staying in self-contained dormitory-style or private cabin accommodation. The Lightstation can only be reached on foot (minimum 19.1km one way). The walk is challenging (5-6 hours), requiring a high level of fitness.
