History of the Cape Bowling Green Lighthouse

This lighthouse was built in Queensland on shifting sands. Due to this problem, it was twice moved away from the sea. Finally, the third move (in 1987) was to the National Maritime Museum in Sydney where it sits today.

Directions: Located in Sydney Harbor at the National Maritime Museum.
