Apart from its lack of height, this is also a unique lighthouse as it is one of the very few that have an external staircase as you can see from this page:-

Kevin ...

Beautiful shot ... I'm weak on metric conversion
but maybe close to 230 feet above sea level?
Kind of a little Gay Head-like ...

... and, already wishing and hoping for a good Australian
Open final to justify watching live tennis at that unholy
hour (330am ESPN2) here along the East coast :wink:

Pretty close Barry. 79 meters X 3.3 feet = 250 plus feet asl approx. That's why it's only a stumpy building.

Here is a pic I took on the open day in August 2009- that was the first time open to the public since the keepers departed 20 or so years ago.
Thanks to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority for the chance

Great photo of the lens. The position of this one reminds me a bit of Owl's Head in Maine (specifically, the stairs going up the hill). That being said, this one looks to be a lot nicer. One day I hope to visit Australia.
