Experience a step back in time and treat you and your loved ones to a stay in a beautifully restored Heritage listed Lighthouse Keepers Cottage at stunning Cape Borda on stunning Kangaroo Island.
Set within Flinders Chase National Park at the far north western corner of the Island, Perched high on a cliff above a vast ocean, Cape Borda offers a special kind of peace and tranquillity, enjoy stunning sunsets and spectacular views across Investigator Strait, Explore the Park’s walking trails or join a tour of the lighthouse and discover the maritime history of the area.
The lighthouse was built in 1858, and is the third oldest remaining in South Australia. It is also the only square stone lighthouse in South Australia. It was built to guide sailing ships arriving in to South Australia off the Roaring Forty trade-winds and into the Investigator Straits and on to Adelaide. In the early days supplies had to be landed by boat and hauled up a long steel railway at nearby Harvey's Return.
It is one of only three lighthouses left in Australia to retain a Deville lantern room.
Regular guided tours of the Lightstation are available every day except Christmas day; join us for the 12:30pm tour for the daily canon firing.
