View looking up the stairwell of the Point Hicks lighthouse, Croajingolong National Park Victoria Australia

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.
Access is usually by walking from the lighthouse gate from the Thurra River campground, although the cottages here are for hire so vehicle access is available for those that are staying in the accommodation. If you choose to walk or have no choice it’s a fabulous trek to the point and achievable for most fitness levels. Along the way take in the awesome views of the east coast of which Croajingolong is famous for. It all culminates in the wonderful view you get from the lighthouse.

    A great image – so crisp and so visually interesting !

    Visually, it looks identical to the end of a Fractal – the geometric building block of the physical universe.
