SeaSide Lights

Bluff Hill Point

Bluff Hill Point replaced a light just to the north at West Point

Bluff Hill Point - 2005

This light on the west coast of Tasmania is similar to those at Cape Tourville and Point Holme. It was never manned. It replaced the West Point Light, built in 1916, about 10km to the north. Only the concrete base of the old light remains.
