May 22, 2021 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm Cape Otway Lightstation

Join us for a very special evening as we light up the night and let our ‘Beacon of Hope’ shine out into the dark…

Explore our heritage buildings after darkness falls, witness the switching on of the Lighthouse and gather around the fire for live music, food and drink at the Lightkeepers Cafe.

Come for a celebration of light as we head into the dark of winter, an evening of Bonfires, the rare opportunity to see the original lighthouse lantern switched on, storytelling with our knowledgeable guides, live music with Flynn Gurry, mulled wine and delicious autumnal food and topped off with fireworks.
