Montague Island Lighthouse

In 1873 the building of the lighthouse on Montague Is was first advocated. Designed by James Barnet was responsible for at least 15 major lightstations along the coast of New South Wales. Lighthouse construction commenced in 1878.

The unauthorised blasting by the building original contractor against instructions, damaged the large granite boulder selected for the lighthouse base.  As a result the lighthouse was repositioned by several feet. Continued tardiness and difficulties the contractor eventual gave up the contract. A new tender was issued and in 1880 given to a second contractor. Resumption of construction proceeded quickly and the lighthouse was completed in late 1881.

Since 1881, visitors have landed here to inspect the Island’s renowned lighthouse and enjoy a tour of this scenic area which boasts colonies of seals and fairy penguins.

During the keepers’ era, all household and lighthouse stores had to be brought in by sea. The supplies were then brought up from the jetty to the lighthouse complex via a tramway.

The tower is constructed of locally hewn interlocking granite blocks which were quarried on the island.

    My family and I were on a holiday at the time, staying across the road from Montague Coffee Cafe. We walked into the shop and wow straight to our nose the beautiful aroma from the freshly brewed coffee was amazing. Better still actually sipping on that fantastic coffee. And YES we are hooked, we have been buying the freshly roasted whole beans now for more than 5 years. We have tried all the varieties available and they’re always fresh and rich and amazing. From smooth, creamy to full bodied dark roast. Congratulations guys on always being consistent 😊 ☕️
