Blinking Billy Lighthouse
Also known as One Tree Point Light, this lighthouse was maintained as an aid to navigation by the Marine Board of Hobart from 1900 until 1955.
On February 4 1975 the Marine Board of Hobart transferred ownership of the lighthouse to the Hobart City Council for subsequent leasing to the Maritime Museum of Tasmania.
The light was named after WIlliam J Watchorn, Master Warden of the Marine Board of Hobart known as Blinking Billy for a characteristic and persistent twitch in his eye.
