Lightstation Cottage 4 exclusive use

Wilsons Promontory Lightstation was built in 1859 from local granite on a narrow peninsula jutting into the wild waters of Bass Strait. It is located via a 20km scenic hike from Tidal River Village.

In the 1800s supplies were delivered to the lighthouse by ship every six months and there was no communication with the outside world. Families, often with children, had the lonely but vital task of keeping the light burning, saving both ships and lives.

Today, visitors can taste a little of the lighthouse keeper lifestyle by staying in Cottage 4 close to the lighthouse.

Cottage 4 delivers exclusive use of a fully self-contained cottage.

The cottage, which has outstanding views from the open plan living room, includes a queen bed, fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom.
All food must be brought in and all rubbish must be taken out.
All linen and towels are provided.

Lightstation, Cottage Accommodation

Wilsons Promontory Lightstation was built in 1859 from local granite on a narrow peninsula jutting into the wild waters of Bass Strait. It is located via a 20km scenic hike from Tidal River Village.


In the 1800s supplies were delivered to the lighthouse by ship every six months and there was no communication with the outside world. Families, often with children, had the lonely but vital task of keeping the light burning, saving both ships and lives.


Today, visitors can taste a little of the lighthouse keeper lifestyle by staying in cottages next to the lighthouse.The cottages are available for individual and group bookings for one or two nights.



All cottages have shared lounge, dining and bathroom facilities. Kitchens are fully equipped with stove/oven, microwave, fridge, cutlery and crockery.


Accommodation is booked per bed, meaning that guests may find themselves sharing a bedroom with others.


Each bedroom sleeps 2 or 4 guests in single bunk beds with a mattress and a pillow.


Visitors need to supply their own towels and linen or sleeping bags, however, doonas may be hired for an additional charge which you can add to your shopping cart when booking.


Check in: 2pm Check out: 10am


All hikers must check in at the Visitors centre prior to departing for safety and emergency purposes.
