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.
