Rich and I have wanted to stay at a lighthouse for a long time. Most lighthouses in Australia have lightkeeper cottages which can be rented for a night or two but the cost to stay is usually pretty outrageous.

Until now.

Point Hicks Lighthouse is located on the north east of Victoria.  While it takes an hour on an unsealed road to reach the lighthouse, it’s an off the grid experience you will treasure.  We did.
