About Wollongong Breakwater Lighthouse, Wollongong

Even though the Breakwater lighthouse of Wollongong has not been operational since 1974, it is still considered to be an attraction of the city. On special occasions this lighthouse is beautified with a decorative light.  The tower stands 12 metres (40 feet) high and has a tapered round wrought iron structure with lantern. The tower looks beautiful from a distance as it is completely painted in white. Between 2000 and 2002, a complete restoration returned the lighthouse and its lighting equipment to its original configuration, and the light was relit in connection with an international lighthouse conference in Sydney. Located on the Flagstaff Hill on Wollongong Harbour, this lighthouse is one of the two significant lighthouses in Wollongong.

Wollongong Breakwater Lighthouse, Wollongong Reviews

  • This is a beautiful place to come to at any time during a year. I miss the co-op fish shop; it used to give a special energy to the harbour. Last night it was magical; a wonderful fireworks reflected in the ocean, thousands of people watching...happy new year⛄️😊

  • Plenty of space to walk along. Can sit along the base of the lighthouse, and on the breakwater blocks. Beware of tides, with waters coming up over the breakwater on occasion.

  • Its a good little place. I would prefer the big lighthouse but this is good to go and check out. The toilets are all the way up the hill thoigh which can be a pain but there is always lots of parking here and there is a fish and chip shop right next door

  • Beautiful place for walk or photography. Old historical light house. Parking and bathroom are available for everyone. Good place for spend leisure time in eveing time.

  • Great for a day out for a family or anyone . Next to the blow hole. Nice for a walk
