Rocky Cape Lighthouse
The Rocky Cape Lighthouse sits on a spectacular headland in the Rocky Cape National Park in north-western Tasmania.
The Rocky Cape Lighthouse was erected in 1968. It is a white square concrete tower, with a mains powered Chance Brothers 400mm catadioptric lens.
The lighthouse is in the Rocky Cape National Park. The lighthouse grounds are open all year round.
Once inside the national park access is via unsealed roads. It is poorly signed so take to left fork to the shanty town then right.
A park entry pass is required, but well worth it.
No tours are available.
No lighthouse accommodation is available
