Sleeping koala

On the road into the lighthouse, keep looking up into the gum trees, there are an abundance of koalas in this area.

Henry Bales Ford lived here in this remote, isolated spot for 30 years (1848 to 1878). There is a small plaque which commemorates his long service and includes the words of Henry Bales himself "There is no record of any failing of the light since it has been in my charge".
