Bathurst Lighthouse - Review

The second of Rottnest Island’s lighthouses was built in 1900. It’s 20 metres high. It was built because in 1899, a ship that tried to blindly navigate the narrow channel between Rottnest and Fremantle ran into reefs, in an incident known as the City of York shipping disaster. Today, the Bathurst, Fremantle and Wadjemup lighthouses create a navigational triangle to help guide skippers through the water. The tower is built on one of the highest points on the island; the views of the channel, the island and the coast are breath-taking. However, you’re not allowed to enter and climb the lighthouse itself.
