Escape Island Lighthouse
Built in 1930 the Escape Island Lighthouse was originally established as a navigational aid for coastal and international fishing. It was originally powered by butane gas but converted to solar in 1986.
JURIEN BAY LIGHTHOUSE.
The Federal Prime Minister’s Department has addressed the following letter to Senator £2. B. Johnston:
‘”With further reference to your letter of February 6, In which you urged the erection of a lighthouse at Jurien Bay, I desire to inform you that a lighthouse is now being constructed on Escape Island at the south end of Jurien Bay. On the completion of its construction within the next few days It will be possible to exhibit the light”
The Jurien Bay light is a Group Flashing White Light (U), showing three flashes every fifteen seconds, the flashes of 1/2 second duration being punctuated by eclipses of one-second and a final eclipse of 11 1/2 seconds. The lights elevation is 96ft., of 6000 candlepower with a visibility of 15 miles.
