Lighthouses of Tasmania


The Tasmanian Index features the lighthouses that were an integral part of this island's rugged scenic coastline from the earliest days of settlement. Some of Australia's most isolated lights are in this state. Australia's second oldest lighthouse, Iron Pot built in 1832, is located just off Tasmania's capital city, Hobart.

A map1 of the lighthouses listed on this website is available here. The lights are numbered as indicated below, beginning with the main lighthouse on King Island, north-east of Tasmania, Cape Wickham.
