Perched upon the clifftop of Vaucluse, Macquarie Lightstation is the site of Australia’s original lighthouse. Completed in 1818, Macquarie Lighthouse was designed by convict architect Francis Greenway, and named for Lachlan Macquarie, the NSW Governor who commissioned it.

Crumbling sandstone foundations led to the construction of a replacement lighthouse in 1883. This lighthouse, designed to closely resemble the original, continues to operate today. The lawns are an opportunity to say ‘I do’ against the spectacular backdrop of Macquarie Lighthouse, with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.
