The Hornby Lighthouse famous for its distinctive red and white stripes located on the tip of South Head, Sydney, Australia. It was built in 1858 by public demand after the tragic shipwrecks of the Dunbar and the Catherine Adamson.
It’s about 15 minutes walk from the carpark to the lighthouse. If you’re planning to come down to this location add another 10 minutes.
Fitness Level – Medium. It can be daunting sometimes coming down a hill and going over some slippery rocks. Need to watch every step and not recommended when wet conditions.

Best time of day to shoot: Dawn/Surise. Also works for Sunset.
