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 city of Geraldton.
The lighthouse is not open to the public; however, you can walk around the bottom of the lighthouse and read the interpretive plaque which provides some interesting facts about the lighthouse and its history.
Situated at Point Moore, seven minutes from Geraldton's town centre, the views of the ocean from the lighthouse are stunning. Walk along the point and take advantage of a great photo opportunity.
Geraldton is a 4.5-hour drive north of Perth.
