AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australia's most powerful lighthouse sits on a salt-dusted headland at Cape Byron, on the mainland's easternmost tip. Since 1901, its silver beam has been beloved by the wild things living on the headland and in the waters of the bay, and by the people of the town itself. When the lighthouse decides it can no longer relate to the ships which now pass without ever visiting the once busy little port, it switches itself off... and issues the townsfolk with an ultimatum.'
