Cape Byron Lighthouse stands proudly on Australia’s most easterly point sending a whopping two million candelas of light, 50 kilometres out to sea each night. It is our brightest lighthouse and arguably Australia’s most famous. As the first lighthouse to welcome the dawn of a new day, each year thousands make the pilgrimage to watch the sunrise.
Lighthouses have served mariners for centuries, warning of nearby dangers.
