Hornby Light, at the entrance to Sydney Harbour, is the oldest
lighthouse of the nine – and the only one built as a harbour light.
Built immediately after the tragic wrecking of the Dunbar, the
lightstation’s first head lightkeeper was none other than the Dunbar’s
sole survivor, James Johnson.
The lighthouse can be reached by an easy walk along the South Head
Heritage Trail through Sydney
Harbour National Park, starting at Camp Cove.

National Park information centre on 02 9247 5033.
