Lighthouse

Description

Originally built out to sea from cape jaffa on the Margaret brock reef and opened in 1872. The historic lighthouse was 41 m high and known as a wells screw pile - designed to ideally suit the local conditions. The 8 roomed dwelling accommodated two lightkeepers and families with enough stores to last several weeks. The first order chance brothers lantern could be seen for 40 km. In 1973, the federal government decommissioned the light station and gifted the lighthouse to the national trust of south Australia. It opened in 1976 as a museum and is now managed by the Kingston national trust branch.
