Brilliant Experiences

Townsville

If you’re a maritime history buff, you’ll love exploring the heritage listed Cape Cleveland Lighthouse, located at the edge of spectacular and aptly named Bowling Green Bay national park. Perched on a promontory looking out to the Coral Sea, the lighthouse is filled with fascinating historical displays dating back to 1879. Remember to pack your camera for some spectacular lighthouse shots and the unforgettable views!

Kangaroo Island

The isolation and beauty of the Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottages (now an enchanting museum) at Cape Willoughby, is as striking now as when the first keepers and their families came to Kangaroo Island more than a hundred and fifty years ago. Daily tours include the firing of a signal cannon, originally built to warn people about invading Russian ships. If a day visit is simply not enough, you can stay overnight in the cottages, making this a truly memorable experience.

Bruny Island

Australia’s southernmost lighthouse on Bruny Island towers 114m above the coastal cliff tops. A climb up the spiral staircase leads to magnificent views from the top balcony where you can view Tasmania’s rugged coastline and learn about the history of this heritage listed landmark.
