Cape Leeuwin is located in the state of Western Australia. Cape Leeuwin is the most stunning view for you to visit especially since it is situated in the Margaret River region. This name is taken from the Dutch ship named Leeuwin that sailed in the Cape Leeuwin in 1622.
One of the famous places in Cape Leeuwin is its iconic Lighthouse which is standing exactly at the point where two oceans meet, the Indian and Southern Oceans. If you visit this place Lighthouse during winter, then you are very lucky to witness a powerful waves’ crash between Indian and Southern Oceans.
