The Light Between Oceans – 2

The description of the lighthouse in The Light Between Oceans matches the real lighthouse that you can visit at Cape Leeuwin, except that the lighthouse at Cape Leeuwin is not on an island, but on a peninsula which juts out into the ocean.

“The white stone tower rested against the slate sky like a stick of chalk. It stood a hundred and thirty feet high, near the cliff at the island’s apex…”.

The Cape Leeuwin lighthouse precinct is open every day for guided and self-guided tours and has a cafe and small museum in a former lighthouse keepers cottage.
