Point D'Entrecasteaux

Admiralty Reference # 1795
1960
- present

 

Does anyone have an image of the original tower with lantern room and lens intact that I could scan to use here?                
1960 - 1989 1989 - Present

Placed on a square cream brick tower with a lantern house and traditional lens the light was powered by acetylene gas.

The lantern house and lens were removed and the light was converted to solar power electric in 1989. It was the last acetylene light to operate in WA. Its light source now consists of a small self contained FA251 beacon.
