The Macquarie Lighthouse, Australia's First Lighthouse
The Macquarie Lighthouse is Australia's first and longest operating navigational light. There has been a navigational aid on this site since 1791 and a lighthouse since 1818.
The construction of the current Macquarie Lighthouse was begun in 1881 and the light was first exhibited in 1883.
The lighthouse was fully automated in 1976.The keepers were eventually withdrawn in 1989.
