Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse

Monday 5 September 2016

Today we decided to walk from the Seal Rocks Caravan Park to the Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse. The walk was about 40 minutes to the Lighthouse including a very steep climb at the end. After about 15 minutes taking in the sights it was an easier walk back to the caravan park.

The lighthouse was built in 1875 at Sugarloaf Point, also known as Seal Rocks Lighthouse, is an active lighthouse located at a point about 3 kilometres southeast of Seal Rocks. It guards Seal Rocks, a treacherous rock formation to the south. It was the first lighthouse designed by James Barnet and is one of only two towers in Australia with an external stairway.
