ABC Wednesdays - L for Lighthouse

This is the Marino Rocks Lighthouse located about a kilometre inland in the Marino Conservation Park, just south of Brighton. The lighthouse was built in 1962 and can be seen in the Gulf from a distance of up to 42 kilometres.

Nice lighthouse, and relatively "modern" too. I can see why it's a kilometre inland; have to go that far for high ground. Good "L."

I don't think I've seen a lighthouse this far inland. Still looks very new. Love the location of those houses near the cliff's edge!

Lighthouses are always special, and this one was a beauty.
