We all love a lighthouse and why wouldn’t we? And there’s nothing like a little adventure by the Harbour. Here’s one to enjoy when your children have become sure-footed. Robertson Point Lighthouse is at the very tip of Cremorne Point.
The lighthouse is still active, it flashes green at night, every three seconds I believe, the same as the lighthouse at Bradley’s Head.
To get to it you need to walk along an easy path from Milson Road or Cremorne Road. The path passes toilets and a very pleasant little playground.
Then you need to negotiate some stone steps and THEN a ladder fixed to a rock face.
You cannot visit the lighthouse itself. But you can sit down there like my son is. And you can think about life, and the sea, and all the people who used to sail into the harbour long ago, and about lighthouses, storms and shipwrecks. Fantastic.

This is definitely not an adventure for little children or any who will not be able to restrain their excitement and go slowly and carefully.
