Columbine Twin Peaks

Columbine Twin Peaks

On March 31, 1829 the barque Columbine was wrecked 1.5 km North of where the present day Cape Columbine Lighthouse stands. The Cape Columbine Lighthouse was commissioned on October 1, 1936.

The Columbine Nature Reserve surrounds Cape Columbine Lighthouse. On the southern side of the lighthouse is Tietie’s Bay. The coastline is well known for its sea life, especially crayfish and abalone.

On 25 February 2014 I witnessed my first sunrise at this beautiful location and at at 06:33 took the accompanying photo a few hundred metres from the Nature Reserve gate.
