Cape Otway Lightstation

We stopped at Cape Otway for lunch. As far as lighthouses go, I thought this was a really good one, and the view was well worth the climb. It's actually Australia's oldest lighthouse, built in 1848, and is considered the nation's most important. This is because for many ships in the 19th century, the lightstation was the first sight of land and an important aid in navigating this treacherous coast that had previously been the site of many shipwrecks.
