Point Stephens Lighthouse stands tall and elegant on Fingal Island with a view over the rocks of Fingal Bay.

Built in 1862, Point Stephens Lighthouse features a swept tower base and first floor entrance that give a flared appearance. This construction, along with the terrace of Lighthouse Keepers’ quarters within the lighthouse precinct makes Point Stephens unique among Australian lighthouses.

Point Stephens Lighthouse is even more unique, in that its location on Fingal Island is occasionally connected to the mainland. However at present, it is not possible to reach the lighthouse via the spit so it’s best to get to the island by boat and walk along the track to the lighthouse. The coastal views from the island are pretty amazing as well.
