Maatsuyker Island is home to Australia’s most southerly lighthouse. Set high on the south end of the island, the lighthouse opened in 1891 and guided ships around Tasmania’s Southwest Cape for over one hundred years before an automatic light was installed in 1996. Maatsuyker is 10 kilometres offshore from the southwest corner of Tasmania making it one of the most remote lighthouses in Australia. The magnificent lighthouse and the three keeper’s residences still stand today on this lonely outpost. Today, in order to preserve the historical, cultural and natural values Maatsuyker Island is manned year-round by adventurous volunteers who accept the isolation and hard work of the island for 6 months at a time. Come join former caretakers, Marina Campbell and Gary Miller, for an evening about one of Australia’s most isolated lighthouses and the beautiful and surprisingly pristine island. Marina and Gary would like to share with you their experiences with the island, the work, the wildlife and most of all the lighthouse.
