This a great historical icon to go have a look at. It’s easy to get to with plenty of parking. Shows how fresh water was transported to the lighthouse

only having 1 spring spring close to the lighthouse , they have used it to cover a lot of ground for construction and drinking supply.
It looks like it would have been a very social spot at the end of hard day's work for a Beer & a wash as well

Close to lighthouse at Cape Leeuwin is an old water wheel from 1895. It was a clever way to pump water from the nearby hills to the building site of the Lighthouse and was made of wood. Today, because of the lime in the water, it is completely encrusted in calcified lime. It is worth the extra few minutes as it makes an interesting diversion if you are visiting the Lighthouse.

This is a 30 second drive and an even shorter walk from the Lighthouse road. The rocky beach formation is more interesting than the water wheel itself.

Very near to the light house and very nice views over the ocean. Nice when the climate is pleasant. Not suitable for handycapped and may be for kids if dont want to climb the rocks.
