Corny Point Lighthouse

Description

Corny Point lighthouse is a lighthouse located in Spencer Gulf, South Australia on the headland known as Corny Point about 7.5 kilometres (4.7 mi) west of the town of Corny Point. It was commissioned in March 1882 to assist southbound shipping to avoid hazards on the west coast of the peninsula south of Corny Point and to determine during darkness where Hardwicke Bay lies if required as a place of shelter from the weather. It was converted to automatic operation in 1920 and along with the demolition of the lighthouse keeper accommodation. The lighthouse has been listed on the South Australian Heritage Register since 24 July 1980.

RvTrips' review

17 May 2016

Corny Point Lighthouse overlooks Spencer Gulf from the bottom of the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. Signs located at the Lighthouse tell of its history and how long it was manned before becoming fully automatic. We visited this lighthouse on our way back to Point Turton after spending the day exploring Innes National Park- a very interesting drive and well worth the trip to explore the area and enjoy this beautiful coastline.

There is a caravan park located at Corny Point and the Howling Dog Tavern is a place to stop for a cold drink and a meal.

A lovely small sheltered beach can be accessed from the car park of the Lighthouse.
