The Bay Rock Lighthouse

The Bay Rock Lighthouse, built in 1886, was originally situated on the western side of Magnetic Island, and, by safely guiding small ships, played a large part in the war effort.

It has been restored by Queensland Transport as part of their commitment to the "Australia Remembers" celebrations.
