CREATING ARTISTIC EXPERIENCES THAT ENGAGE COMMUNITY.
THE COLLECTIVE EMERGED FROM A SHARED DESIRE TO CREATE DIVERSE ARTISTIC EXPERIENCES FOR OUR COMMUNITY.
The Lighthouse Arts Collective is a group of artists and arts workers living in Point Lonsdale. The lure of the seaside, natural environment and community, saw each of us call this special place home. Our practices engage in a variety of forms and disciplines including sound, music, performance, poetry, visual art and film.

LIGHTHOUSE ARTS COLLECTIVE
CREATING ARTISTIC EXPERIENCES THAT ENGAGE COMMUNITY.
When the rain sets in and the wind begins to howl, and the seething summer shoreline becomes quiet, where does one go to be with community, to gather? Where are the public spaces in which you can be, not just a consumer, but a citizen? A citizen seeking community, culture and conversation. This has always been the role of the artist, hand in hand with cultural institutions: the gallery, the library, the theatre, the music hall. All places to engage, receive and be inspired.
This is the role of Lighthouse Arts Collective.

POINT LONSDALE IS A TOWN OF STRIKING CONTRASTS.
There are two diverse sides to this Victorian coastal town; the rugged landscape of a village situated at one the headlands of the Bellarine Peninsula and the calmness of a protected foreshore.
POINT LONSDALE ACCOMMODATION Cosy, cutting-edge design, romance from the past, whether secluded in ti-trees or with the roar of the ocean, Point Lonsdale Accommodation options abound. The total immersion in a past ambience with modern facilities can be appreciated at the Point Lonsdale Guesthouse (formerly the Terminus and the oldest in Point Lonsdale) situated close to the lighthouse, pier, beaches and cafes. A gentle walk to Ripview to see ships coming from everywhere in the world. The low chugging sound of a pilot boat, possibly a close-up view of ‘The Princess of Tasmania’ and further beyond the Point Nepean Headland (historically linked to Shortland Bluff and the Point Lonsdale Headland). Three headlands with National Heritage Listing, a testament to Australia’s earlier defence capabilities. Explore the intriguing Point Lonsdale Lighthouse Reserve with Victorian Heritage Listing for a snapshot into the past with old ruins, gun fortifications and the Foghorn Shed surrounding the iconic 1902 Point Lonsdale Lighthouse. Imagine internees, national fitness camps and summer music camps in this location.
