The International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend is an annual event attracting nearly 500 registrations for operations throughout the world. This year it is on 17-18 August.

Last year (2018) SARC members activated lighthouses at Cape Byron (VK2SRC) and Ballina (VK2DLR). The Cape Byron operation was led by Reg VK2MNM and Roger VK2LRB. They operated as usual from next to the lighthouse keeper’s cottage. Duncan VK2DLR led the Ballina operation, in the small lighthouse park¬† on the north headland.
