Breakwater Lighthouse by Arfan Habib

Breakwater Lighthouse also known as the old Wollongong Harbour Lighthouse is located on the southern breakwater of Wollongong harbour, a coastal city south of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The lighthouse was built in 1871, it assisted the passage of vessels into the Wollongong Harbour. Due to years of neglect the wrought iron plates, railing and footing had deteriorated so much that lighthouse was considered for demolition and was discontinued in 1974. It was restored in 2002 as operational and is listed an official heritage building.

The best thing I like about landscape/nature photography is to witness the amazing shift change occurs in the nature. Be part of it.
