The other 4 being; Fingal Head Lighthouse, Richmond River Light, Clarence River Light (now demolished) and Crowdy Head Lighthouse (all built between 1878-1880).

Great place and a superb looking lighthouse, do like the last photo
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
