Cape Spencer Lighthouse

A 1950s beacon was upgraded in the 1970s, and was replaced with the current concrete structure and lantern.

History

A automatic beacon was established on this point in 1950. The beacon resembled a metal box with a river-style light on top.

A major upgrade was undertaken during the 1970s and the current concrete structure and lantern was erected.

The new tower was also seen as the replacement for the lighthouse on nearby Althorpe Island.
