Split Point Lighthouse - Aireys Inlet

Built in 1890 after the surf coast had claimed some ten shipwrecks. Complete with lighthouse keeper’s quarters, assistant’s quarters, stables and a store room for $20,000 at today's rates.

Some 34 metres (112 ft) from the ground and 66 metres (217 ft) above sea level, the lighthouse was automated in 1919.
