Hornby Lighthouse, Australia

PC: Ben Fewtrell
























Beautiful, isn't it? With Christmas just around the corner, I'm drawn to its Red and White colouring. So festive!

The lighthouse was built in 1858 near Watsons Bay, now part of the Sydney Harbour National Park, which they started conserving in 1975.

It's an active lighthouse, but there are trails up to it - for more Tourist info, see their website (they even have a link to a virtual tour via Google Streetview for couch potatoes and penny pinchers).
