About Cape Borda Lightstation, Kangaroo Island

This lighthouse structure is reminiscent of the previous times when travelling was done in the open seas by sail. The monument is the symbol of isolation and hardship that the sailors had to suffer during their voyages. Built in 1958, this lighthouse is styled in European fashion. If you further wish to know the history of this structure, you can take a guided tour. There is a tour at 12:30 pm daily that openly fires the canon in order to let the visitors know the past when warning signal to ships were passed through this measure in times of danger. Other highlights include:
