Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse

The original Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse was constructed of timber in 1882 and located as part of the Shoalhaven Signal Station on the beach 200 metres to the west of the current lighthouse.

Aside from the Keepers Cottages at South Solitary Island, this is probably the most endangered lighthouse in New South Wales and is of great concern to lighthouse enthusiasts and the community at large. Vandalism is prevalent here due to the isolated location, and in 2011 the light structure was removed for restoration due to significant damage.

The lighthouse is located on the south side of the entrance to the Shoalhaven River just east of Nowra.
