Augusta Boat Harbour
Cape Leeuwin, the south western point of mainland Australia, has long been famous for its strong westerly winds and huge
swells. For cruisers attempting to circumnavigate Australia, the lack of safe overnight anchorage has long been an issue.
Now, thanks to the Regions for Royalties programmes, Augusta has a new $36 million harbour.
As well as a safe anchorage, the new harbour is also expected to boost whale watching numbers.
