Barrenjoey Head

Around 10,000 years ago the headland was cut off from the mainland due to the rising sea level; subsequent buildup of a sand spit or tombolo reconnected the island to the mainland (a 'tied island'). It is the location of Barrenjoey Head Lighthouse, a lighthouse that was first lit in 1881. (Wikipedia)


  1. I love the look of the lighthouse and the lighthouse keeper's home. Does anyone still live there now?

  2. Noone lives there, but you can do tours on Sundays.
