Port Adelaide Lighthouse

You are here Home  > Lighthouses >  Port Adelaide Lighthouse

In 1912, when the lighthouse was at a different location, it was struck by a ship and fell into sea, killing the two lighthouse keepers: Henry Franson and Charles Mcgowen. Many people have said to have seen and heard their spirits in and around the lighthouse. It is also said that the lighthouse is haunted by two children: a boy and a girl.
