Only 13 kilometres from Dunsborough along a scenic drive is the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and Maritime Museum. Situated on a rugged promontory, the surrounding environment is host to a diverse range of flora and fauna. A climb to the top of the lighthouse offers panoramic 360 degree views across Geographe Bay, the Indian Ocean and Cape Naturaliste.
In season, watch migratory whales pass the Cape. The fascinating maritime museum provides stories and pictures of the past; and also offers refreshments and souvenirs. Other features include walk trails, whale watch platform, wildflowers (in season) and native birds.

Dive The Swan, a wreck purposely sunk in 1997 to create an artificial reef and offer the chance to recreational divers to dive this wreck safely. The Swan can be found at a depth of 30 meters. Although initially the wreck was bare, this quickly changed. Marine life started to appear, finding food and shelter. The Swan is over 100 meters long and large holes have been cut to provide safe entry and exit points all over.
