A highlight of our evening walks over New Year 2018 was the coloured lighting of the McCrae Lighthouse each night. The actual lighthouse may have been decommissioned some time ago but it remains a beacon for us on our holiday particularly in the evenings.

Worth a visit to view. Grab a coffee across the street and have an enjoyable time viewing the lighthouse.
