Book Direct with the Owner at Cape Borda Lightstation - Flinders Chase National Park with Accommodation Daintree in Cape Borda, for all your Attraction and travel needs.Cape Borda Lightstation is testament to a bygone era of travelling the open seas by sail, and is a monument to isolation and hardship. The precinct is steeped in European history and consists of an unusual square lighthouse built in 1858, several historic Lighthouse Keepers cottages and a museum. Visitors can learn more about the island's fascinating maritime heritage on a guided tour (fee applies). For a blast, don't miss the 12.30pm tour for the daily firing of the cannon at 1pm, which was once used so that ships could set their clocks and as a warning signal to ships, venturing too close to the shore in fog. Other highlights include the museum where you can read the diaries of early Lighthouse Keepers. The nearby Lighthouse Keeper's Cemetery at Harvey's Return also offers a sobering insight into the hardships faced by early Lighthouse Keepers and their families. Facilities include picnic areas with sheltered gas barbecues and there are a number of walks available nearby, including the Cliff Top Hike. To really experience the spectacular beauty and tranquillity of Cape Borda, why not stay overnight in a charming self-contained Lighthouse Keeper's cottage. Nearby Harvey's Return has a campground (camping fees apply).
