Booderee National Park: Cape St George Lighthouse
The ruined Cape St George Lighthouse is perched on the edge of spectacular cliffs between Booderee National Park and the sea.
The lighthouse lookout offers stunning sea and cliff views - a fantastic place to watch whale migrations (June to July and September to November). It is heritage-listed and the most significant European historic site in Booderee National Park.
In the 19th century, shipwrecks were numerous along the Wreck Bay coast. Unfortunately, the Cape St George Lighthouse did not halt the shipping toll. It was replaced by Point Perpendicular Lighthouse in 1898 and destroyed in the early 20th century.
Booderee National Park is owned by the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community. Enjoy your stay in beautiful Booderee and please care for the land and waters, as this is a very special place.
Entrance to the lighthouse is free but subject to Booderee National Park entry fees (see web site for details).
