Artist's Description

Australia’s third oldest lighthouse, Tacking Point is situated a few kilometers south of beautiful Port Macquarie (NSW). In the mid-nineteenth century, there were few lights in the Tacking Point area and over 20 ships were wrecked. The high elevation means the lighthouse does not need to be very tall … the outcrop also gives a great vantage point for whale watching!

Huge thanks to Dennis Gay for the guided tour today .. the clouds put on a fabulous display (although the light came and went!!) and the wind also made itself felt … unexpected gusts made photography quite tricky!!
