Cottages

The Lighthouse cottages were built to house the lighthouse keepers and their families. They were built from Oregon collected from local shipwrecks and are excellent examples of nineteenth century lighthouse residences. The two Assistant Lighthouse Keepers cottages are  available for guest accommodation.

Each cottage has three bedrooms and can sleep up to 8 people. Linen can be provided but due to limited water and power supply we appreciate it if guests bring their own. A well appointed kitchen with all necessary appliances, dining room, bathroom, and a comfortable sitting room with wood-fire heater are also part of the cottage. An outside gas BBQ and a generous front verandah with magnificent views across Point Hicks and Bass Straight completes the experience.

We consider it an advantage that our cottages do not have phones or television. BYO books, boardgames and a deck of cards.

You will need to bring all food and drink (other than water) with you as the nearest shop is about an hour’s drive away in Cann River. 

The Bungalow

A bungalow which is located at the base of the lighthouse tower and sleeps two is also available for rent. It has a combined kitchen and living area with a fireplace for cold nights. The kitchen is well equipped and the toilet and shower is a few steps away in a separate building.
