Bradley's Head Lighthouse

history

Bradleys Head Lighthouse
©2006 Gabriel Ditu
Bradley's Head was named after William Bradley, an officer on the Sirius, guard ship of the First Fleet.

In 1905, due to numerous accidents, a small lighthouse, 6.7m, was built at the tip of Bradley's Head. The lighthouse character: green light, occulting every 3 s.

Trivia: The headland was used for shooting some scenes for Mission: Impossible II. The large house close to water seen in the movie was built on location and then removed after the shooting was completed.
