The Cape Schanck Lighthouse has been operational since it was built in 1859. Constructed from limestone and sandstone, to this day the lighthouse still uses its original mechanisms to function. Situated in the Mornington Peninsula National Park in Victoria, the Cape Schanck Lighthouse offers a glimpse into the past.
As well as regular guided tours, the lighthouse station has a kiosk, a museum, and an information center. Visitors can also stay the night in the old lightkeeper’s cottages, making the Cape Schanck Lighthouse a unique base for exploring the Mornington Peninsula.

Prices for just the museum are $13.50 for adults, $9.50 for children and $37 for families. For admission to the museum and lighthouse, it’s $16,50, $10.50 and $44 respectively.
