In 1890 the remote lighthouse keepers settlement at Point Hicks was completed comprising the lighthouse and housing for three lighthouse keepers and their families.
High in the tower the light, fresnel lens and clockwork mechanism that sent the light beam 26 nautical miles out to sea are still intact.
Constructed to British Admiralty standards it is an excellent example of nautical engineering.
The Point Hicks Lighthouse is open to the public for tours at 1pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Tours are free of charge but are limited to a maximum of 12 people per tour. Bookings are not required.
Situated deep within the Croajingolong National Park the Point Hicks Lighthouse now offers a unique holiday experience for those who want to stay in one of the keepers cottages, which are now comfortable, self-contained holiday accommodation.
Bookings for the Point Hicks Lightstation cottages will open on 29 May for stays commencing from 1 September 2018 onward on www.parkstay.vic.gov.au
