LoA Crookhaven Heads 2006

Lighthouses In Disrepair


Recent newspaper stories have highlighted a need for repairs at Tacking Point Lighthouse at Port Macquarie and Fingal Head Lighthouse near the NSW/Queensland border. The stories appeared in the Port Macquarie News - Tacking Point Lighthouse In Disrepair and the Tweed Daily News - Fingal Lighthouse in need of TLC, These lighthouses are the maintained by NSW Land and Property Management Authority.

Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse, near Nowra in NSW, is in much worse condition, through neglect and vandalism. A very welcome announcement has been made that $100,000 has been allocated to allow a study and initial steps towards restoring the tower. Crookhaven Heads lighthouse is on a headland which is hidden by trees and shrubbery. It was renovated several years ago but vandalism has once again endangered its long term existence. LoA President Ian Clifford has been involved in discussions as to the best way to save the tower. Before any money can be spent on renovations, there has to be a plan to safeguard the tower. The announcement was made in the South Coast Register Crookhaven Heads Funding Announcement. Council have invited LoA to provide a representative to the restoration committee.
