Subject: Probus visit to lighthouse 27/03/2019

Hi Donna, as per our phone call the visit to the Caloundra light house is 27/03/2019. Time around 10am. I had hoped we would get about 20-30 people but realistically we will probably have less than 20. I'll know closer to the time.
Unfortunately I fell over a month ago and broke my leg. Hopefully I will be a lot more mobile by then. We have quite a number of people who may not be able to climb the steps, are we able to still get some information without the climb?
Thanking you for your help.
Kind regards.

Event Summary
For a fun and interesting family outing you can’t go past a visit the Caloundra Lighthouses at Canberra Tce, Caloundra. You can climb both lighthouses, and both offer spectacular views. Learn about their history.
Event Full Description
The 1896 lighthouse was constructed with a timber frame and corrugated iron cladding, a construction type unique to Queensland lighthouses. In 1968, it was replaced by the Signal Station, Light and Radar Installation, a reinforced concrete structure. The two sat side by side until 1970 when the 1896 lighthouse was relocated to Golden Beach. It remained there for 29 years.   After the Signal Station was decommissioned due to changing technology, the 1896 lighthouse was restored to its original position.  It is Caloundra township's oldest building.
There are spectacular views to the shipping channel, Moreton Island and the Glass House Mountains. Caloundra's European history is closely linked to the story of the lighthouses, and the two buildings provide evidence of the history of lighthouses from both ends of the time scale.
Is this event free or is there a cost to attend?
Adult $ 5.00
National Trust Member $ 4.00
