View looking up the stairwell of the Point Hicks lighthouse, Croajingolong National Park.
This lighthouse is immaculate and has been well looked after. It was named after Leutenant HICKS who was the first person to site this part of Australia during Captain Cooks voyage. They continued up the East coast of Australia eventually landing at the town called Seventeen Seventy. (1770) Stands as the tallest in Australia. Now run by Solar power and continues to be a beacon in the night. Open for public viewings for a small fee. Well worth the trip :)) The lighthouse was commissioned in 1890 and still operates today.
