Cape Otway Lightstation to close June 2022

Postby Eremophila » Thu 10 Jun, 2021 4:45 pm

Apparently this was announced last year but has just been re-confirmed: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-06-10/ ... /100204328

No more hot coffee and snacky treats along the GOW!

It is an interesting site to visit, although the $19.50 entry fee is no doubt off-putting for some domestic tourists.

It's a shame, or maybe it isn't? If Parks end up running it you may not even notice a difference. As usual with these things there is just enough info provided for it to be a total mystery. It seems odd for lease terms to come to such an impasse.

There's stories on this issue dating back 4 years. It does seem to be an ideal asset to hand over to a TO group and perhaps that is part of the story
