Cape Northumberland Park
Experience the magnificent rugged coastline, natural vegetation, historical lighthouse site and the fairy penguin colony at South Australia's most southerly point, the Cape Northumberland Heritage and Nature Park.
Southern Ocean Sunsets
Cape Northumberland is the most southerly point of South Australia. It is also one of the most spectacular locations to have an uninterrupted view of sunrise and sunset. The Southern Ocean's unquestioned mood at this most southerly point creates a unique performance of natural beauty, as it washes against the main land rock face while you view the sun rise or set for the day.
Every evening around dusk the Little Fairy Penguins march one by one to their well protected home at Cape Northumberland. The purpose built Penguin Viewing Platform provides the best views of the little penguins at dusk or dawn and maintains their natural habitat without any interference or disruption to the surrounding environment.
The Southern Ocean has been carving impressions for thousands of years where the water meets the mainland... Rhino Rock is a result of this natural art; once a part of the mainland and now separated for eternity and resembling a Rhinoceros.
Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your natural pleasure!
