Point Perpendicular Lighthouse

Point Perpendicular is a point at the southern tip of the Beecroft Peninsula and at the northern entry to Jervis Bay, in New South Wales, Australia. It is the location of Point Perpendicular Light, a historic lighthouse which was active from 1889 to 1993, and a replacement skeletal tower which is active.[1]

The lighthouse and its grounds are an exclave of the State of New South Wales, being separated from the rest of New South Wales by a strip of land which is itself an exclave of the Australian Capital Territory.
