Hornby Light

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.
For more details, or a brochure on South Head, phone the Sydney Harbour National Park information centre on 02 9247 5033.
