Cape Byron Lighthouse, Australia

Doors of Cape Byron Lighthouse

The lighthouse at Cape Byron stands atop the rugged cliffs near Australia’s most easterly point.

The stark white lighthouse with its ornate crown was constructed in 1901. It contains two lights to warn vessels approaching the rocky coastline at night.

The entrance to the lighthouse still has the original wooden doors with brass fittings and frosted glass panels.

The glass panels in the door carry the insignia of the state of New South Wales (NSW).

A glimpse of the stairs that lead to the top of the tower can be seen in the glass panel above an interior door as you enter the foyer. To the right of the foyer is a small museum.

I travel for both work and leisure. I enjoy outdoor activities, visiting UNESCO Listed sites, and cooking up a storm! It is going to take a life-time for me to visit all of the places on my travel list and I am looking forward to the journey ahead.
