Today we headed off to the third of Kangaroo Island's Lighthouses at Cape Willoughby.
Before we got there we had the great pleasure of seeing a Rosenberg’s Goanna on the road. He/she was very cooperative posing for photos for a time before we went out separate ways.
We drove for about 25kms on a pretty well made gravel road before we crested a hill and saw the lighthouse ahead of us.
The Cape Willougby Lighthouse was built in 1852 and is very accessible with guided tours, accommodation and an adjacent café offering light meals with spectacular views across the Backstairs Passage to the South Australian mainland.
We wandered the grounds and took the historic trail to the beach enjoying the views
We then headed to the café for afternoon tea and then headed back up the road. We stopped on the crest of a hill for some final pics of the lighthouse and found some kangaroos who were resting under the trees near the roadway.
