Fingal Head Lighthouse

We had stayed the night at an Airbnb at Banora Point so that we could meet up with my cousin Glenda for dinner. She and her husband have recently moved down to Coolangatta.

The bnb overlooked the Tweed River and had a lovely location. The owners also have an Airedale Terrier who was pleased to see us, but unfortunately I was so excited I for got to get a photo.


It was only a few miles to the lighthouse reserve at Fingal Head.

Increasingly there are reminders that there were people with an ancient history here before the Europeans arrived.

I have no idea what was in the buckets.

Strong storms can cause beach erosion so most beaches have sand berms covered with plants to lessen the effects of waves.

It's a quiet easy and very pleasant walk.

Some of the trees are quite wild.

It's not a particularly high lighthouse but it is on a headland.

Construction date.

JALB. Just another lovely beach. Deserted for the most part.

Mount Warning in the distance.

Looking north to the tall buildings in Coolangatta in Queensland.

Balsalt from the eruption of Tweed Volcano which resulted in Mount Warning.

Dogs need a drink of water.
