Artist's Description

Built in 1980, the Troubridge Hill Lighthouse is located between Edithburgh and Port Moorowie on the Yorke Peninsula, South Australia and guards the entrance to Gulf St Vincent.

The Lighthouse is unique due to the special wedge shaped clay bricks that were custom made to build this unusual lighthouse, which never needs rendering or painting. It is designed to be resistant to high winds and earthquakes.

The lighthouse measures 32 metres high and has a light range of 22 nautical miles. It is automatic and unmanned.

The area is known for the treacherous Troubridge Shoal and nearby Marion Reef which by 1911 had claimed nineteen ships.
