This lighthouse is closed to public and according to plans has everything a lighthouse should have, which includes a Lantern Room and Optics, an Equipment Room, a Storage Room, and an Engine Room with Wash Room. Of course, the idea of living in a Lighthouse is inviting, however, in this case, might not be ideal.

If you are traveling north and have time to make a 'tourist' stop then the Guilderton Lighthouse is well worth the time off course. Apart from viewing the the only Lighthouse from Fremantle to Jurien Bay, there are many lookout points over the ocean which will offer a great picnic stop for you and the family.
