Just 18 km north of Ansons Bay is the Eddystone Point Lighthouse, inside the Mount William National Park. The land here is protected, not only for its sheer beauty but for its significance to the Aboriginal community. The Eddystone Point lighthouse is a key attraction here.
When a dangerous rock was discovered just below sea level at St Helens Point in 1875, it was decided to build a lighthouse.
Eddystone Point is known as Larapuna to the aboriginal population, and the Tasmanian Government gave a 40-year lease for the Larapuna grounds surrounding the spectacular lighthouse in 2006.
