Cape Otway Lightstation Australia's Most Important Lighthouse Awesome Views, Amazing History

Delicious home-made food and local delicacies, with a Mediterranean influence, are served all day in the licenced Lightkeeper’s Café (9:30am-4:30pm).

Built in 1858 from sandstone quarried at the nearby Parker River, the Café serves affordable, tasty lunches, morning and afternoon teas, seven days a week.

Our menu includes foccacias, quiches, wraps, and soup, with a tempting selection of vegetarian meals. We showcase free range eggs laid by Otway hens and local dairy produce. We strive to source all our food locally.

Enjoy scones with cream and jam served with a tea of your choice while taking in the view of Bass Strait and the romantic lighthouse from the verandah of the Café.

Need a caffeine fix? We serve lattes, cappuccinos, mochas and lots more. Babyccinos are free for the little people in your family. Complement your coffee with a slice of Dutch apple cake or tasty cheesecake.

If you’re planning a special getaway for a birthday or anniversary ask about our sunset tour and dinner in the Lightkeeper’s Café.
