Impacts during Construction

  • Every effort will be made to minimise impacts on our visitors as we complete these works.
  • During the course of construction, it might be necessary to close the lighthouse temporarily to the public.
  • There will be no ablution facilities available during the entire construction period.
  • There will be a loss of parking spaces at the back of the lighthouse, however, there are limited parking spaces off the paved road at the front of the lighthouse on the seaside.  Visitors are also welcome to park at the southernmost parking area and walk along the boardwalk to the lighthouse.
