It is known the island has been use by the local Aboriginal people for thousands of years, the lighthouse was built here in the late 19th Century and still is in use today.
There is limited accommodation available in the fully restored head keepers quarters. It is very exclusive, only one group or family can stay at a time, providing a very unique experience.
