Western Head Lighthouse

While Western Head Lighthouse was not built until 1962, there has been a foghorn on the point since 1924. The white octagonal concrete tower stands 19.5 meters tall, is topped with a red lantern, and exhibits a flashing white light. As indicated by its name, the lighthouse is situated along the western approach to Liverpool Bay, while Coffin Island Lighthouse marks the eastern approaches.
