Lighthouses of New South Wales


The New South Wales Index consists of lighthouses built in a wide variety of styles used in that state over the last 180 years. Many of the New South Wales lighthouses have a common appearance, and are easily recognisable as being designed by the NSW colonial architect, James Barnet. Australia's oldest lighthouse, Macquarie Lighthouse, is also located in NSW, with the first tower built on South Head in 1818.

A map1 of the lighthouses listed on this website is available here. The lights are numbered as indicated below, beginning with the first lighthouse on the New South Wales / Queensland border, Fingal Head.
