The lighthouse was constructed in 1883, originally built from local limestone and stood 7.5 meters tall. The lighthouse is on the South Australian Heritage Register as a state heritage place due to its significance in the country’s maritime history. It has been monumental in assisting with ships’ navigation during the late 19th century, while its design represents advancements in lighthouse technology.Cape Banks Lighthouse is accessible to the public through a sealed road that takes you to Carpenter Rocks. From here, follow the unsealed road for the last few kilometres, and you’ll see the lighthouse.Since there are no guided tours, visitors can explore the area on their own. The lighthouse is open all year round.
