Vaucluse Bay Leading Lights
The Vaucluse Bay Leading Lights are active lighthouses guiding sailors down the Eastern Channel into Sydney Harbour. The distance between the two lights is 945 metres.
They are among the four lighthouses said to be designed, but not, by architect Maurice Festu in a style now sometimes called “Disney Castle”, the others being Grotto Point Light and Parriwi Head Light.

NB: Information is historical data and is not for navigational purposes.
The leading lights are operated by the Sydney Ports Corporation. Viewing the Front light from the street (80 Wentworth Road) is very difficult due to the steep terrain so the lighthouse is best viewed from the water. The Rear light is easily seen from 12 Wentworth Road
Both lights are located on private land and are not accessible to the public.
