River Reflection

Above: Maribyrnong River
Strolling along the riverside one early morning, I was caught by the reflections of the palms in the water.
The Maribyrnong rises some 50 odd kms north of Melbourne near the Macedon Ranges and flows south to Port Philip Bay. This section here is in the north western suburbs and shares a cyclist and pedestrian path. There are several riverside walks popular with walkers and joggers.

Griffiths Island Lighthouse

The Griffiths Island Lighthouse was built in 1859 by Scottish stonemasons out of bluestone. The unique stairway is cut with each step being inserted in the next course of stone in the outside wall.

Originally located on an area known as Rabbit Island, the island has since been encompassed by the neighbouring Griffiths Island.

The last lighthouse keeper that lived on the island was there from 1929 till 1954. There was one more lightkeeper for a short time before the light was automated.
