Bluff Point (Leading Lights)

Admiralty Reference #  1742
1876 - present

     
1876 - 1952    - present

Leading lights based south of the entry to Chapman River to guide ships around the northern reef into Champion Bay

The front leading light was gutted by fire in 1952   while the cottage tower light  was removed from the cottage tower in 1970. The Geraldton Historical Society acquired the Keeper's cottage and Upper Tower in 1971 and now uses the site as their meeting place and to store their archives.

The current leading lights are on a similar bearing
