The Point Danger Captain Cook Memorial Lighthouse was built in 1970 as part of the bicentenary celebrations of Captain Cook's exploration of the east coast of Australia. The memorial also doubles as a functional lighthouse. The structure is an unusual modern style. The lighthouse emits a double white flash every ten seconds at a focal plane height of 44.5 metres however there are no reefs off, or running East from this point.
