The Historic Cape Light and Museum

The Historic Cape Light and Museum

The Historic Cape Light and Museum at the end of Bayley Road is a specially designed replica lighthouse housing the 1850’s Fresnil Prismatic Light that powered the Cape Egmont Light until 1999.

This carefully restored light is now in full working order in the lamp room on top of the replica lighthouse building and can be seen by appointment. The lower levels of the replica lighthouse house an interesting collection of memorabilia and displays from the days when Lord Rutherford, then a boy, lived close by at his father’s flax mill.  

Bayly Road SH45. Open Saturday, Sunday and Monday's 11am - 3pm.
