A white concrete tower, its white flashing light at an elevation of 23m is visible for 11 miles. The unusual rock formation on a smaller island, makes the Tanner Is photos easily recognisable. This area of Yampi Sound required navigation lights with the development of mining in the North west of Western Australia.
