Point Stephens

The circular tower of Point Stephens Lighthouse, with its flared base, grand external stairs and clean pure lines, is one of the most distinctive of the NPWS lighthouses. Built in 1862, it stands tall and elegant above the rocks and coastal heath near Fingal Bay, 50 kilometres north-east of Newcastle.

The sandstone lighthouse and its terrace of now ruined cottages are in Tomaree National Park, on an island connected to the mainland by a sand spit. The spit can be highly dangerous, and visitors should never cross on a rising sea or tide. For more information, call 02 4984 8200.
