Where is Janus Island?

Cape Leeuwin 1

If you have read “The Light Between Oceans” by ML Stedman, you might be wondering where Janus Island is located. The island with its lighthouse is actually fictional. But you get a good idea of what it is like by looking at Cape Leeuwin in the southwest of Western Australia, where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean. Just imagine that long, thin cape being moved 100 miles out to sea, and that’s Janus Island.
