‘Hornby Lighthouse, South Head’ $350

The unusual deep red stripes of Hornby Lighthouse cut bold against the shimmering waters of the Tasman Sea. Built following the tragic shipwrecks of the Dunbar and the Catherine Adamson in 1857, the Hornby Lighthouse entered operation the following year. It’s named after Admiral Sir Phipps Hornby, Commander in Chief of the British Pacific Fleet in the 1860s.
