A tour of the Batavia Coast Lights provides a cross section of the historical development of lights on the West Australian Coast, ranging from the remains of one of the original Bluff Point leading light towers and keeper's cottage, now the headquarters for the Geraldton Historical Society, through to the award winning Guilderton Lighthouse made of specially shaped bricks in 1984, to the Light on a pole version at Freshwater Point which services the local fishing fleet. The remaining Obelisk at Dongara takes you back in time to when such a day mark enabled safe navigation into the port.
