Our Lighthouses!

First Order – Australia’s Highway of Lighthouses documents the extraordinary history of Australia’s greatest lighthouses – those bearing a first order lens, measuring up to twelve feet high and six feet across. Painstakingly researched First Order presents in chronological order, the motivation, history of design, construction and function as well as the technical details of each lighthouse.
