Lighthouse Keeper's Cottages - Cape Willoughby Conservation Park

Hotel - Resort - South Australia

Favourite

Ever wanted to stay in a light keeper's cottage? This is the place do it. Cape Willoughby Conservation Park is home to South Australia's first lighthouse and rich in maritime history. Although the lighthouse operated to prevent shipwrecks, a number of ships did sink off the coastline.

Cape Willoughby is one of the very few places where you can stay in a lighthouse keeper’s cottage. You will find two cottages set on the rugged eastern point of the island overlooking the treacherous Backstairs Passage. 

The original lighthouse keeper’s cottages were in a valley, half a kilometre from the lighthouse. There was fresh spring water here and it was close to the beach where supplies were landed. Due to deterioration over time and the hardship of reaching the lighthouse in bad weather, new keeper’s quarters were built much closer to the lighthouse in 1927.

Recently renovated, they offer very comfortable accommodation for you, family and friends. Both cottages sleep up to nine people.
