The oldest lighthouse in Australia Oct 18, 2009
The Macquarie Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse of Australia as it had been built first in 1818, then replicated stronger in 1883. I read it is also the best-known.

It is 26 meters high, elevated at 105 metres above the sea level.

It is closed but visits are allowed as I read that tours are organized every second months, by booking only.

I did not visit it, I saw it from the Ocean during an outing to watch whales. As it can be seen from many parts of Sydney, I guess the view from there is also great...

It is located 3km south from the entrance of Sydney Harbour, in Dunbar Head (Vaucluse), after Hornby Lighthouse.
