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 Reviews & Ratings
Wollongong Harbour is a great and historical place to visit. There is also an excellent fish and chip shop I can recommend. Parking can be difficult especially on weekends, so park wherever you can and walk.
Looking for a view on a clear day visit the Wollongong Lighthouse and take in the panoramic view of the ocean and if you turn 360 degrees you have our magnificent mountain range at your back. FANTASTIC views can be had from here and even weddings are held here . Its a good place to take in what Wollongong really means and that is between the mountains and the sea . At the lighthouse you can understand and comprehend how nice a place Wollongong is
One of the most beautiful beach which I have ever seen. We good stop for driving between Canberra and Sydney.
As always, it's a beautiful and peaceful place to spend a day, especially on a sunny day like today. There weren't many people and the beaches were clean as usual.
Beautiful place for a walk, and the views and to die for!! Just stunning.
