This is a fantastic working Lighthouse and you do not need to walk far from car park to see it. The Lighthouse is impressive and the views across Bass Strait is great.

We stayed in the light keepers cottage next to the lighthouse. Awesome views of the heads and the ocean. The cottage is more a house that sleeps up to 9. The lighthouse still works at night and the air foghorn will go off every Sunday....More

Every Sunday at noon the fog horn sounds at the light house, amazing, only one in the Southern Hemisphere.

Certainly worth paying a visit whilst in Low Head. Nice lighthouse with a lot of historic value, well maintained. Interesting on Sunday when the foghorn is on at noon - really impressive!
