Wollongong Breakwater Lighthouse - Review

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

  • Parking close by, excellent views, good for a stroll. Recommended for a short stop to stretch your legs. It's windy on most days.

  • Must see place very beautiful with a lovely beach and public pool. Has cafe and restaurants and public toilets. Little play area for the kids and plenty of grass area to set up for a picnic. Find a free parking spot and watch the boats sail out to sea

  • My favourite hang out.I love the atmosphere here.good fishing in the harbour especially if its an easterly wind you can fish the boat area and you wont feel the wind at all.good coffee along the small beach and in summer its the perfect place for a dip because you can jump off the edge of the lighthouse into the crystal clear water.

  • 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⛄️😊

  • Great spot ..very clean Very friendly people
