Conservation management and cultural tourism plan for NPWS lighthouses

In 1997, agreement was reached to transfer nine historic lighthouses from the Commonwealth to the NSW Government. Although the lighthouses are owned by the NPWS, the operation of the lamps is still managed by NSW Waterways and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.

The NPWS has developed a conservation management and cultural tourism plan for the lighthouses. This plan will ensure that the lighthouses are conserved and visitors can enjoy the full cultural and heritage values of these powerful monuments.
