Join us at Cape Otway Lightstation on Saturday 22nd of May 2021 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 and gather around the fire for live music, food and drink at the Lightkeepers Cafe.

Lighthouse lovers from far and wide are invited to come and join in the celebrations of Australia’s most significant Lighthouse, fondly named the ‘Beacon of Hope’. Built in 1848 it was a truly significant Australian landmark for many early immigrants to Australia who had been at sea for up to 3 months before sighting the Lightstation shining brightly at Cape Otway.
