The Western Australian Coastline is beautiful but it can also be treacherous, so Lighthouses were built to assist ships to navigate and to protect them from any dangerous coastlines and reefs.

The South Mole Lighthouse has been in operation since 1903. This lighthouse is painted green and has a fixed green light. It is accessible via Fleet Street.

The North Mole Lighthouse began operation in 1906. The occulting red light, emitted from a fixed lightsource at a focal plane height of 15 metres above sea level, is visible for 11 miles (6 nautical miles) and indicates the westernmost point of the harbour and its entrance. It is accessible via North Mole Drive.

Both lighthouses were designed by Charles Yelverton O'Connor, who was an Irish engineer well known for his work in Western Australia, especially the construction of Fremantle Harbour. They guard the entrance to the Fremantle Harbour. Constructed from cast iron panels and with fourth order fixed lenses, these two lights sit on the rock breakers at the entrance to the Swan River.

Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is in the south west of Western Australia. It is a 20-metre high cylindrical tower built of limestone that still uses its original first order Fresnel lens made by Chance Brothers. The light characteristic is "Fl. 10 s", i.e. a group of two flashes every ten seconds, the focal plane is at 123 metres above sea level. Another precious lens optic is displayed there, the second order Fresnel lens of the Jarman Island Light, as well as the original Great Sandy Islands beacon. Both items were originally used on the Pilbara coast further north.

The lighthouse has a range of 26 nautical miles (48km). The limestone for the lighthouse and the keeper's cottage was quarried near Bunker Bay and carted back to the site by bullock wagon. It was activated in 1904

Only 13 kilometres from Dunsborough, the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is one of the most popular attractions in the Geographe Bay and Margaret River Region. Easier than most lighthouses to climb, the lighthouse tower, and the restored cottages reveal the fascinating maritime history of the Cape region.

Took this image in broad daylight and a clear blue sky, the limestone structure was dazzlingly bright.

Boulder Bank Lighthouse is a decommissioned 19th century lighthouse located near the Port Nelson end of the Boulder Bank. It was New Zealand's second permanent lighthouse. Prior to its construction, the Nelson harbour entrance, with its four-metre tidal range and narrow curved channel, was a trap to unwary ship's captains. The octagonal cast-iron tower was manufactured in sections by Stothert & Pitt, an engineering firm from Bath, England, in 1859 at a cost of £2,824 (equivalent to £284,957 as of 2019). It was then shipped to New Zealand on board the Glenshee, and was erected in 1862. It is registered with Heritage New Zealand as a category I structure with registration number 41. The lighthouse was lit for 120 years, from 1862 until 1982. It was given a fresh coat of white paint in October 2018. Its perch on the natural breakwater makes it popular with tourists. Today, it stands alone, but was not always so. When it was manned by lighthouse keepers, a number of homes, other buildings and radio mast clustered around its base.

Peggy's Point Lighthouse, also known as Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, is an active lighthouse and an iconic Canadian image. Located within Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, it is one of the busiest tourist attractions in the province and is a prime attraction on the Lighthouse Trail scenic drive. Of the 164 strong lighthouses in Nova Scotia, this is one of the most photographed places in Canada. Established in 1868, it has a white octagonal reinforced-concrete tower with red aluminium octagonal lantern, fixed green light, and is 15.2 metres high. It has a range of 10 nautical miles (19km). The huge granite boulders under and around the lighthouse is a beautiful combination in the landscape.

This was taken from a side-backlit position. The haze makes it warmer in colour. This lighthouse overlooks the mouth of St. Margaret's Bay. Further beyond and below is Atlantic Ocean. Here the signalling light just appears red.
