Macquarie Lighthouse information
When the original Francis Greenway–designed lighthouse (1818) fell into disrepair and was dismantled, the current lighthouse (1883) was built in front of it as an exact replica. It’s a pretty spot, with grassy lawns, heavenly ocean views and a clifftop trail extending to Bondi. Before the lighthouse was built, a series of fires were lit along this coast to keeps ships away from the cliffs.
