Around Australia. No. 1. South-west corner thumbnail image.

Two hundred miles south of the Western Australian capital of Perth stands Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. We see something of the life of farmers in the district who run beef and dairy cattle nearby, whilst for the visiting tourists there is fishing, birdwatching, and exploration of the limestone caves.
