Cape Spencer, Yorke Peninsula

Cape Spencer, Yorke Peninsula

Cape Spencer is near the very southern tip of Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.This part of the coastline is windswept and wild. Many ships have come to grief over the years in these waters, especially in Investigator Strait, the stretch of water between the cape and Kangaroo Island.  In the photo below you can just see the hazy outline of Kangaroo Island (click on the image to enlarge).

The Cape Spencer Lighthouse is automatic and was built in 1975.
