    1. We found out that the location of the lighthouse is Rottnest Island, and it is near Wadjemup road.
    2. My partner, Alicia, rode there on her bike with her family on the holidays when they were visiting Rottnest island.
    3. We just right clicked on the picture and pressed: ‘search google for image’ and it came up with the Wadjemup lighthouse. We also asked Miss Bradshaw where she had been on the holidays and she said Rottnest Island.
    4. The different names are: Wadjemup Lighthouse, Rottnest island light station, and Wadjemup means a place on the water where spirits are.

    Wadjemup Lighthouse Rotnest island
    how we found this out
    we pressed search google image and then it had a link that said Wadjemup lighthouse then we pressed the link and went into maps.

    one more tip is the fact that in the description it says that miss Bradshaw took it in her recent HOLIDAYS so it has to be a holiday place and it would be probably somewhere populer like Rotnest.

    The Location of the Wadjemup Lighthouse is to the North of Rottnest Island. We found this information out by looking at google earth. We also did a Web search of that image. It is also known as Rottnest Island Light Station, people may have also called it at first Tower of Litehous (according to Wikipedia).

    We think that this lighthouse is the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. We found this coincidentally while looking for Where in the World No. 9. The picture in Google Earth showed the small building next to the lighthouse and the road leading towards it. We think another of it’s names might be ‘The Tub’.

    I researched on Google Earth and I believe that this photo was taken from Rottnest Island (in WA). The picture is a lighthouse from Rottnest which is called Wadjemup Lighthouse.

    1. We think that this lighthouse is on Rottenest island and it would be the Wadjemup Lighthouse South West of Geordie Bay settlement.
    it could also be the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse witch is on Leeuwin road

    2. for Cape Leeuwin lighthouse we looked at all the light houses in Western Australia and it looked similar but for the Rottnest Lighthouse Lua’s Grandma is a tour guide there so she recognised it
    3. We have not found any supporting evidence
    4. Wadjemup lighthouse is also called Rottenest island light station, it is significant to the Whadjuk Noongar people.
