Photographer's Note

Here is a limestone built Wadjemup Lighthouse, one of two existing and fully operational at present on the Rottnest Island. It is also a part of the island's main tourist attractions, for a fee you can reach on your own legs the top crown of the structure.

Completed in 1849, the original 20-metre Wadjemup Lighthouse was Western Australia's first stone lighthouse and was built to provide a safer sailing passage for ships to Fremantle Port and the Swan River Colony. A second and larger replacement tower was built on the same site in 1896.
