Lightkeeper’s Cafe

Built in 1858 from sandstone quarried at the nearby Parker River, the Lightkeeper’s Café is located in the centre of the Lightstation Heritage Precinct overlooking the Lighthouse. The Cafe is open to visitors to the Lightstation from 10:30am to 4pm, serving tea & coffee and sweet treats.

Please note that due to staffing limitations we are not serving a lunch menu. Due to its location in the centre of our Heritage Precinct and limited heritage infrastructure, the cafe is accessible only to visitors of the Lightstation. 

Try our famous homemade Lighthouse scones baked daily onsite and served with a dollop of fresh cream and a delicious smear of Otway Kitchen Jam.

Our baristas serve locally roasted Hello Coffee with fresh local milk from Apostle Whey Dairy which is situated on the lushest green hills in the Otways!
