We are delighted to announce that we are reopening our gates and welcoming back visitors from Friday the 16th of September 2022!
From July 1st 2022, The Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority finalised a lease agreement to operate the iconic Cape Otway Lightstation. We have been working hard behind the scenes and after a winter closure we are excited to reopen the Cape Otway Lightstation Heritage Precinct once again to the general public.
Tickets will be available to purchase on arrival with no pre-booking required.
Spring Operating Hours :
Friday- Tuesday 10am-5pm (last entry 4.30pm)
Closed Wednesdays and Thursdays.
The Lightkeeper’s Cafe will be open and serving a selection of Tea & Coffee, sweet treats and of course, our famous Lightkeeper’s Homemade Scones with jam & cream! We will not be offering a lunch menu this season due staffing limitations.
Please check our website for further information on tickets, operating hours and to plan your visit!
With the new lease agreement now finalised, work continues on transferring the management of the Great Otway Lightstation Precinct from Parks Victoria to the Authority.
The precinct is one of 931 parcels of land to be transferred to the Authority over the next three years – a fundamental part of our role to protect and manage the Great Ocean Road coast and parks. Click here for full media release.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Cape this Spring!
The Team at Cape Otway Lightstation
