Table Cape Lighthouse - Maritime history

Just a 10 minute drive from Wynyard’s main street, the viewing platform at the Table Cape carpark offers easy access to breathtaking views, including the 180m drop to crashing waves of the Bass Strait. It was the treachery of these waters that necessitated the construction of the Table Cape Lighthouse, which was first lit up at 5pm on 1st August 1888. One hundered years later it was permanently entered into the Tasmanian Heritage Register in recognitoin of its importance to maritime history in Tasmania.
