Nobbys Beach and Nobbys Head, Newcastle, New South Wales (NSW), Australia

Nobbys, the commanding island at the mouth of Newcastle Harbour is the most prominent landmark in Newcastle. First described by Captain Cook in May 1770 as ‘a small clump of an island lying close to shore’, it has become a symbol recognisable to all in the Hunter Region and far beyond. It is the location of Nobbys Head Lighthouse, the third lighthouse built in New South Wales after the Macquarie Lighthouse in 1818 and the Hornby Lighthouse which was also built in 1858.
