Bradleys Head Light is an active lighthouse located at Bradleys Head, a headland protruding from the north shore of Sydney Harbour, within the metropolitan area of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is the sibling of Robertson Point Light.

The lighthouse is mounted on a rock and connected to shore by a footbridge.

The light characteristic shown is a green occulting light with a cycle of three seconds (Oc.G. 3s), the same as Robertson Point Light.

Site operation[edit]

The light is operated by the Sydney Ports Corporation, while the site is managed by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water as part of the Sydney Harbour National Park.

The site is open and accessible to the public, but the tower itself is closed. Parking is available at the end of Bradleys Head Road. Close to the lighthouse is the foremast of the cruiser HMAS Sydney, a monument for all Australian sailors killed at war.
