First stop was a lookout about 15 mins out of Devonport that gave us a great view of the countryside and had info on the various landmarks around the area.
This was a fantastic stop on our way up to Stanley. We paid for a little tour up to the top of the lighthouse, and Karl, our guide, told us loads of interesting stories about this lighthouse and many others in the North of Tasmania and around the world. He used to be a lighthouse keeper himself, I think on the Mersey river at Devonport. (could be wrong about the place) Karl was a great story teller and gave us the history of the light on Table Cape and some of the sad stories of the people who worked there. One lighthouse keeper lost his son over the edge of the cliff, and another child died from illness in part due to the remoteness of the area. We saw his little grave at the gate as we drove out. He also explained how the light used prisms to send a single 100 watt, one inch halogen globe's light, 29 miles out to sea! There is a picture of the light below, with the spare globes sitting there if one fails. Karl took a picture of us at the top of the lighthouse and you can just get a sense of how windy it was.
