Lighthouse of the Week, June 26 - July 2, 2016: Smoky Cape, Australia

According to one Web site, the Smoky Cape lighthouse is the newest lighthouse in Australia, i.e., the most recently built.   It's in New South Wales (so not far from Sydney), in a national park (Hat Head) and you can also stay in the guest accommodations, which used to be the lighthouse keeper's dwellings.

One of its unique aspects is an octagonal tower.

Two good Web sites about this one:

Now to the pictures.  The first one is a bit blurred because it's from a video, but it puts the view in context.
