Montague Island Lighthouse is the perfect place to get in touch with history while seeing dramatic views, amazing birds and marine wildlife.
Let your inner history buff loose and explore Montague Island Lighthouse. The lighthouse, built way back in 1881, is impossible to miss - it’s an impressive granite structure that will have you reaching for your camera. Climb the winding staircase to the top - it’s a great vantage point for whale watching and the amazing 360 degree views will take your breath away.
Retaining most of its original form and features, little has changed from the time the lighthouse was constructed to what you will see today. Designed in 1873 and completed almost a decade later, it’s a testament to Victorian design and innovation. Taking a guided tour is a great way to learn more about the unique heritage of the lighthouse and surrounding wildlife.
Stay overnight at either Montague Island Head Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage or Montague Island Assistant Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage. In the morning light explore the island along the Montague Island walking track.
