Port Adelaide Lighthouse

The Port Adelaide Lighthouse originally stood at the mouth to the Port River in Port Adelaide from 1869 until 1901.

In 1901 the lighthouse structure was re-located to South Neptune Island. The lantern and lens was used in the new Wonga Shoal Lighthouse built south of the entrance to the Port River.

The tower was dismantled, moved back the the wharf at Port Adelaide.
