Danger Point Lighthouse
A few decades after the wrecking of the famous HMT Birkenhead in 1852 at Danger Point, the present lighthouse was erected in 1895. Danger Point Lighthouse is at the tip of the peninsula. The rock the Birkenhead struck, is visible from the lighthouse.
The many steps to the top of the light house can be climbed, allowing for a marvellous 360 degrees over the ocean and the hinterland of the peninsula. Danger Point is a proper name for the place where the Flying Dutchman was spotted for the first time. By Karl Daniels.
