Cape Leeuwin National Park

This park covers the Cape which is the land's end of the South West and the junction of the Indian and Southern Oceans.The Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse was named after the Dutch ship Leeuwin which passed this point in 1622.

 

During the building of the lighthouse, a spring was tapped to provide fresh water for the workers. This system was used until 1928. Since then, deposits of carbonates have encased the wheel in stone.
