Cape Schanck Lighthouse Climb and Museum tours
Experience a 'curiosity' tour of the Cape Schanck Lighthouse, Museum and Head Lighthouse Keeper's House with The Lady of History team.
Janice Haynes , aka The Lady of History, is a pharophile and loves lighthouses and telling the stories of the Lighthouse keepers and their lives at the Cape Schanck Lighthouse on the Mornington Peninsula. Operating since 1859 the Cape Schanck Lighthouse is considered to be the most authentic lighthouse in Australia and still operates with its original Chance Brothers First Order lens. Lighthouse climb tours with Captain Marcus White provide history insights for the curious as to how a lighthouse works and its function as well as spectacular views into Bass Strait and across the Mornington Peninsula from the Balcony level of the Lighthouse tower. Janice’s Museum and Head Lighthouse Keeper’s house tours include lots of historical and site information and stories about the Lighthouse keepers and how they lived. You will also see learn about Morse code and see a demonstration of Semaphore flag.
