The Old Caloundra Lighthouse

When I say the only thing we lack on the coast is a history, this is perhaps the best example I can give.

If you have followed the links to the Old Lighthouse web pages, you will already know that this is thought to be the oldest surviving structure in Caloundra, and I doubt that we will find evidence of an older one on the Coast.   Built with a timber frame and clad in corrugated iron, it has survived (just) since 1896.  

I know people who are almost that old!

One of my many projects listed for coming years is to try to track down further remnants of construction, but I suspect there will be little to find until around the 1940's and once I get to there.... well I do know people that old, lots of them.
