Point Danger Lighthouse
Point Danger is home to the Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse. Opened on 16 April 1971, it is one of seven concrete towers built for the bicentenary of James Cook’s first voyage. It marks the border between Queensland and New South Wales.
It lays claim to being the first in the world to experiment with laser technology (1971). The experiment was unsuccessful and it returned to the more conventional lenses (1975?).
