Cape Otway Lightstation


Cape Otway Lightstation is Australia’s oldest surviving lighthouse. It has been working continuously since 1848, protecting ships sailing through the ‘shipwreck coast’ off southern Victoria. It’s one of the most dangerous seas in the world. Hundreds of ships have been lost over the years. I haven’t been there for a few years but was really disappointed because the buildings look like they need a good paint. I’ve heard the complex of buildings have been renovated so it’s probably a good time to go back.
