The McCrae lighthouse will soon be shining again after Mornington Peninsula Shire received a $1 million grant from Heritage Victoria for its restoration. Work is expected to start this month and be completed in December, and will include repainting the lighthouse from its current greyish silver to its original bright white.

The lighthouse was built in England in 1874, transported to Australia and assembled in McCrae in 1883. Measuring 33.5m, it’s Port Phillip’s tallest lighthouse and had been guiding mariners for more than 100 years before being ‘retired’ in 1994. However, it has become a major drawcard for residents and tourists.

“The McCrae lighthouse restoration project will include a full clean, paint and repair works to guarantee its ongoing historical importance to our community,” said Mayor Despi O’Connor. Cr Antonella Celi said: “The plans to restore McCrae lighthouse . . . will ensure that the lighthouse will remain a shining beacon for residents and tourists alike for many more years to come.” Cr Debra Mar said: “This history deserves to be restored for current and future generations of our community.” Cr Kerri McCafferty said: “The lighthouse is listed on Victoria’s Historic Buildings Register (and) is one of two such types remaining in Australia. McCrae foreshore is such a beautiful section of our coast and restoring the lighthouse to its former glory will only enhance that beauty.”
