Bulwer Island Lighthouse
The Bulwer Island Lighthouse was located near Brisbane River mouth where it operated from 1912 to 1983. It was then moved to the Queensland Maritime Museum. The tower went through restoration in 2005, replacing timber and rotted windowsills.
The Tower is a perfect example of the type of construction unique to Queensland.
The station was established in 1909. The current light was lit in 1912, as the rear light of a pair of leading lights at the mouth of Brisbane River.
