Where to stay in Cape Otway

About Cape Otway

Located in the verdant Great Otway National Park, the historic Cape Otway Lighthouse is the oldest surviving lighthouse in Australia, dating back to 1848. The lighthouse sits almost 100 metres above the Bass Strait, offering rich Australian history and panoramic ocean vistas. You’ll also have access to knowledgeable guides who share the stories of European pioneers and the native Aboriginal people.

Visit the historic buildings at Cape Otway Lighthouse, which also includes an 1850s Keepers Quarters and Workshop, 1859 Telegraph Station, World War II Radar Bunker and Aboriginal Talking Hut. The Radar Bunker is particularly fascinating for its involvement in protecting Australia during World War II.

Want to make your experience last longer? Organise a unique stay at one of the accommodations at Cape Otway Lighthouse, which include the rustic Lightkeeper’s Cottage, Lighthouse Lodge and Lighthouse Studio.
