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

The Lightkeeper’s Cottage can be converted to cater for smaller groups of up to 8* people. A section of the house can be closed off, by a lockable door – separating the Main Section from the Lightkeeper’s B&B.

This spacious, stately house, crafted from stone quarried by hand from the nearby Parker River, was built in 1857 and gives guests an insight into the domestic life of the Lightstation’s first keepers.

Enjoy a dinner party, prepared by our kitchen, by the open fire in the Lightkeeper’s Cottage dining room.

Snuggle in with a book by the wood fire in the lounge room.

Views of the lighthouse and Southern Ocean are unsurpassed from the lounge and main bedroom.

Our well-equipped kitchen is ideal for those who want to self-cater.

Breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are served daily in the Lightkeeper’s Café.

The wide verandahs provide cool shade in the summer, where you can while away the afternoon, admiring the view.

Tariffs include entry to the Lightstation.
