Tulips at Table Cape
Wynyard, Tasmania, Australia

Tulip Fields – Sheep at Pasture – Table Cape Lighthouse
How perfect!

* Table Cape1888. Active; focal plane 180 m (590 ft); two white flashes every 10 s; red flashes are shown east and west indicating shallow water close to shore. 25 m (82 ft) round brick tower, painted white. An unusual “flyover” gangway provides access to the tower. The keeper’s houses were demolished in 1926. David Boon’s photo is at right, Barry Polden has a fine 2011 photo, an April 2007photo is available, Wikimedia has a 1948 historic photo, Huelse has a historic postcard view, and Google has a satellite view. The tower was renovated and the lantern rebuilt by AMSA in 1979. This historic lighthouse is a well known landmark on Tasmania’s north coast. It is so high, its light is sometimes obscured by low clouds. In May 2008, the Waratah-Wynyard Council appropriated A$185,000 for improvements to allow public access to the lighthouse, and negotiations with a commercial operator were underway. Located on the cape about 8 km (5 mi) north of Wynyard. Accessible by a gravel road; parking available. Site open, tower closed. Operator/site manager: AMSA. ARLHS AUS-157; Admiralty K3532; NGA 6984. – Lighthouse Directory
