The red and white candy stripes of Point Moore Lighthouse are a spectacular sight that stands out proudly amidst the Geraldton landscape. Standing 34 metres high, it was the first all steel tower built on the mainland of Australia, back in 1878. With its bold colours, the lighthouse has become an icon of the port town of Geraldton.
The lighthouse is not open to the public; however you can walk around the bottom of the lighthouse and read the interpretive signage which provides some interesting facts about the lighthouse and its history.
The Lighthouse's beach is a popular shore diving location. At low tide, you can walk straight off the beach onto the reef.
Situated five minutes from Geraldton's town centre, the views of the ocean from the lighthouse beach are stunning. Walk along the point and take advantage of a great photo opportunity. Geraldton is a 4.5 hour drive north of Perth.
Entry to the public is not permitted.
