Holidaying in Northern NSW: Part 5

High on the rocky headland, north of Lighthouse beach, is Tacking Point Lighthouse.

Built in 1879 and designed by NSW Colonial Architect, James Barnet, Tacking Point Lighthouse is one of 5 similarly designed navigational lighthouses. The other 4 being; Fingal Head Lighthouse, Richmond River Light,  Clarence River Light (now demolished) and Crowdy Head Lighthouse (all built between 1878-1880). Only Tacking Point Lighthouse & Crowdy Head Light still have the storeroom attached.






There are 1440 minutes in every day... 1440 opportunities to capture a moment of beauty.
What moment of beauty did you capture this week?

Beautiful Liz, especially the colours of the last. Now I know why the Fingal lighthouse looks the same. A life size replica has recently been built on the hill behind the current Clarence River/Yamba lighthouse, on the original site. You can see it here
