Eddystone Point Lighthouse, Tasmania ~ Australia



Standing proudly aloof, with its encompassing heathland and rugged landscape of granite boulders coated in orange lichen, the Eddystone Point Lighthouse is a beacon of fearless beauty on Tasmania’s north east coast.

Situated on Eddystone Point, jutting out into the Tasman Sea at the southern end of Mount William National Park, it is surrounded by the ferocity and whim of nature’s changing moods. The striking pink granite tower stretches 37metres high, proudly guarding the entrance to Banks Strait and warning Sea Captains on an anxious passage since May 1889.

The Eddystone Point Lighthouse was built with granite quarried and cut at the nearby quarry site that can still be seen today near the beach in front of the tower. Still lived in by the lightkeepers, the three houses at the station are the oldest surviving lightkeepers quarters in Tasmania and were also built with local granite.
