Terms and Conditions
“Lightstation” refers to Cape Otway Lightstation; “Organisation” refers to the group or individual that is booking a Lightstation tour; 'Management' refers to The Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority, the operators of the Lightstation.
No use of the Lightstation will be permitted except that authorised by management prior to the booked tour.
Noting a safety limit of 15 people in the Lighthouse at any one time, some larger groups may be split up when visiting inside the Lighthouse tower itself. This also applies for catering, with seating limits in the Café.
Management reserves the right to cancel attendance or vary without notice, desired tour times and accepts no responsibility for any loss or inconvenience so caused.
The Organisation acknowledges the complete authority of the Tour Guide during the excursion and agrees that all its party shall observe all directions of the Tour Guide during the excursion.
We will attempt to tailor the tour to the specific requirements of the group, however may not be able to do so in all cases. Generally a tour will be conducted within 1 hour and will introduce the group to the history of the Lighthouse and buildings, shipwrecks of the area, and the isolated lives of the original lighthouse keepers.
The Organisation acknowledges that inherently tours of the Lightstation may involve hazards and that while management will undertake all reasonable effort to minimise risk of injury and damage neither management nor any Director, Officer, servant, agent of management nor any person employed by management shall be liable for any loss or injury to the Organisation or any participant or visitor at the Lightstation arising from the tour or otherwise in the course of the visit.
No food or drink shall be consumed within the Lightstation buildings, without prior arrangement.
