The Corny Point Lighthouse which was completed in 1882, is 12.2 metres high. Built of local limestone, it was initially serviced by a head keeper and assistant. The lighthouse ceased being manned in 1920. The ancient rocks near the lighthouse are believed to be around 1800 million years old.
Local tip: One of the peninsula’s most spectacular drives is from Corny Point to Berry Bay, a stunning beach and a drawcard for surfers.
It was named Corny Point by Captain Flinders in 1802 due to the fact that it looks like a growth on the toe of the Yorke Peninsula.
