Corny Point on Yorke Peninsula can be a lovely spot on a fine day. On a stormy day it is entirely a different matter. On our recent holiday there we could barely get out of the car, the wind pushing against the door was so strong. I then had trouble standing still in the gusting wind for some photos. Never mind. It was all part of the adventure. We still enjoyed the spectacular scenery and wild waves.
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.
