Abstract

We provide a brief account of the building stone geology and architectural development of a stone wall that features as part of the Lighthouse Hotel in Bunbury, Western Australia (WA). Our purpose is to highlight the ‘big ideas’ of geology contained in the key building stones of the hotel’s walls, which are visible to passing tourists. We also investigate the architecture, art and cultural stories of the Lighthouse Hotel and the role they have in fostering the future development of geotourism in Bunbury and the South West region of Western Australia.
