Australian Maritime Systems Group – Cape Cleveland Lighthouse
The iconic Cleveland Bay Lighthouse offshore from Townsville in North Queensland is one of Australia’s most recognizable heritage listed structures. Build in 1917, the lighthouse is a critical part of North Queensland Maritime History.
Being situated at the most northern point of Cape Cleveland, access to the structure was only available via sea. All equipment was barged across to the Cape and then hauled across the beach and up the mountain to the site.
The scaffolding included full external access as well as provisions to temporarily relocate the beacon to the top of the scaffolding to ensure no delays or limitations to the lighthouse’s function.
