Clarence River Lighthouse 2 by JohnK222 Clarence River Lighthouse 2 by JohnK222
This is a picture of the replica Clarence River Lighthouse. The original one which was built here in 1880 was removed to make way for a water tank, and the current lighthouse from 1955 which is in use now, replaced it. This would have been one of the 5 similar lighthouses in this northern part of NSW. (The other 4 being the Fingal Head, Richmond River, Crowdy Head and Tacking Point lighthouses.)
Anyway, the tank is now gone, and the replica stands back where the tank was. You can go inside this lighthouse to a point, but as it’s now a radio station, there are some restrictions as to what you can access. This photo was taken in August, 2012.

It’s actually a fair way back on a bit of a hill. It’s probably why the newer one is closer to the ocean.

Which areas are off limits and which areas can you go into?

Oh, well you could go into the entrance area, and see into the room where the dude was with the microphone and stuff. :-)

Is there no access to the tower itself?

So are you allowed inside the tower?

I'm really not sure. :D I guess if I'd waited around long enough for the radio announcer dude to talk to me, I might have found out.

If it were allowed; I would definitely stop over for a visit to this lighthouse when I stop over at Australia one day.
