Hornby Lighthouse Sydney Reviews
The third oldest lighthouse in Australia Oct 18, 2009
Hornby Lighthouse is the third oldest lighthouse in Australia. It is located at the entrance of Sydney Harbour, on the north of Watson's Bay.
It was built after the tragic wrecking of the Dunbar, and first lit in 1858. It stands 9 metres above ground level and 27.4 meters above the sea level.
It is well recognizable with its peculiar style made of red and white vertical stripes.
I can see it quite often when I take the ferry around Sydney Harbour, and also from the ocean during the outing I did to watch whales.
It can be reached by an easy walk along the South Head Heritage Trail. You can go there by a ferry from Sydney Circular Quay to Watson Bay.
