The Red Light
Is a fixed light that throws a constant beam over Julian Rocks out in the bay.
Located within the Cape Byron Lighthouse in the one-time head lightkeepers office, the Cape Byron Lighthouse Martitime Museum offers visitors insight into the days before fully-automated lighthouses and the long tradition of lightkeepers.
