Poorly curated exhibits - the dinosaur exhibit looked like it had been assembled by a five year old - although in all fairness, a five year old would probably have done a better job.Incredibly racist short blond woman at reception. I am white so she was fine with me but the poor couple in front were not and as soon as they had paid and were through the doors, racial slurs began to fly. I had heard Australia was racist however I have not found this true, I believe this was a one-off but was very unwelcome and soured the experience of my travel in Australia.A$19.50. For what? Please show me value for money. Toilets were the ones workers use on building sites, for temporary constructions. Is this a temporary tourist attraction? The bunker looked like it had been made two years ago with modern glass which really gave off an unauthentic feel.Please spend less money on cutting grass and more money educating your staff on tolerance.The correct price to pay would be 7-9 dollars. Unless prices are reduced, don't take the detour (its a good old drive)
A long drive to face an overpriced confusing site. Not at all welcoming staff in fact the man in the Lighthouse could not of been grumpier or ruder if he tried! Did try to engage him in some conversation to learn more about the history (isn't that what he is there for??) but after some snide remarks from him, I wouldn't waste my time.Toilets disgusting.Entry fee does not warrant a visit here.Seeing the Koalas in the trees on the way out was the best part.
I was apprehensive about the cost of touring around the light station especially at the initial signals building where they tried to show the history of the building while also showing an intermingled display about dinosaurs and fossils throughout this fantastic historic building。 Once we continued on the the keepers' quarters and the lighthouse itself there stopped being dinosaur exhibits and the facility's history shone through。 Staff were nice too。 Would like to see more of the radar bunker to make that story live a bit more。
2nd time we have visited and although many are dissatisfied with the Facilites and Cost we enjoyed our afternoon。。。 The road between Apollo Bay and Cape Otway Lightstation is magnificent with lush mature bushland and huge ferns, we enjoyed the drive and were not disappointed。。。 We had no expectations but just wanted to visit and see the Lighthouse which we did! Views were spectacular, the gentleman in the lighthouse was very friendly and a wealth of knowledge, lady at reception was also very friendly and pleasant。。。 I will agree with most reviews that the cost is high as we did expect to pay around $10。00 each but didn't think anymore of it after we left。。It was very windy and the waves/ocean was extremely rough which highlighted to us what it must have been like for the settlers all those years ago。。 I didn't like that very young infants and children were at the top of the Lighthouse as I felt it was not safe for them but I guess that is up to the parents to supervise them。。 Overall we enjoyed our visit and will visit again in another few years。。If you appreciate and or have a passion for Lighthouses and for outback lightstations then you will enjoy Cape Otway Lightstation as we did!
I had reviews here on trip advisor and they are all true...the toilets well they so need attention...the entry price of just underneath $20 per adult is a little steep but hey you just have to suck it up..the views are amazing..great place if your love to take photos...it isn't awe inspiring but it's good...we came out of it saying bit expensive but glad we saw it ...
We started our journey again to see the Cape Otway lighthouse。 The lighthouse is located outside the main road after driving for about 5km。 You need to buy an entrance ticket for about $15。 The light house is not very tall but very attractive。 There is a nice lady who gives a comprehensive description about the light house why it was built, how it works and so on。 She answered all the questions in my mind without even me asking them。 At the top of the light house there a balcony with a 360`degrees view of the sea。 It is truly amazing。 There is a small museum outside with the dinosaur fossils they have found on the light house grounds。 Since the light house has a big ground they give the grounds for the school children for camping。 There is also a small jungle with an aboriginal specimen village。
杏彩彩票投注The lighthouse is Ok, a bit pricey though, but the place is quite nice, with beautiful seaviews。 You can even climb to the top of the lighthouse where an engineer will be ready to answer your questions。BUT, the forest of gum trees just before is definitely the best place to see koalas。 We were there at the end of the day (around 5) and we really spotted so many, some very close from us。 The kids were delighted。
Said to be the southernmost point of mainland Australia, this is indeed a place that one should not miss. Going up the lighthouse and listening to the keeper's stories (despite people saying he's grumpy - he's not!), and the view from up there into the ocean, into the horizon, is really a sight to take in. And the meals the keeper's wife cook, it's simple yet delicious!
We visited on the 9th of March whilst traveling along the great ocean with friends from Amsterdam。 The 10+ Km drive through the forest on the way was the best part due to seeing plenty of Koalas in the trees。 Once we arrived at the lighthouse we were surprised to find they charged $19。50 per adult to enter, there were 7 of us so it cost almost $140!!! The short blonde woman at the desk complained when I paid using a $50 note as she wanted correct change。。。。 Once you go through the doors you can enter a telegraph station with a few dinosaur bones (mostly plaster casts) and some other random crap that feels out of place。 My personal highlight was a very interesting rock in one of the rooms which my brother and I got plenty of photos of。 After the telegraph station we entered the lighthouse which had a guide at the top who told us some of the interesting facts about the lighthouse, we wandered around for a while then checked out the WW2 radar bunker which was kinda interesting but poorly signed。 There was a stationary binocular that for an additional charge of $2 could be looked through tho I think its a bit steep after paying almost $20 to enter。 My partner used the toilets which was a portable toilet you would find at a building site。 Considering the entry cost they could easily erect a proper toilet complex fitted with those Dyson airblade hand dryers and automatic soap dispensers。 In short, management really should charge much less for what is on offer。
