Highfield Point Lighthouse
The Highfield Point (new) light sits on farmland just north of Stanley, Tasmania. It can be seen from the road, but is on private property.
It replaced the Circular Head lighthouse which has been moved to the wharf area of the small town of Stanley.
Circular Head was fitted with a Colt’s seven-day acetylene gas generator and was attended once a week by the Harbour Master.
Old light — The lighthouse grounds are open all year round. The tower is not open to the public.
New light — The new light is on private land and is not accessible.
