Cape Inscription

Admiralty Reference # 1724
1910 - present

Ralph Meakins Collection

Photos by Ralph Meakins

The tower is built of reinforced concrete and carried the original light from Breaksea Island. In 1917, an AGA lantern was fixed and the lighthouse was no longer manned. The lens is on loan to the WA Maritime Museum, though not currently on display.
 

The Lighthouse is erected near to the place where Dirk Hartog landed in 1616.
