Warden Head Lighthouse, Ulladulla

Coastal shipping was the lifeblood of small towns like Ulladulla in the late 19th century but it was also a dangerous business. Beneath the blue waters off the South Coast lie dozens of shipwrecks, often driven onto reefs during an East Coast Low, like the Walter Hood on 26 April 1870 in Wreck Bay, 12km north of Ulladulla.

Originally erected on the stone pier on the south side of Ulladulla Harbour in 1869-1872
