Corny Point lighthouse is a lighthouse located in Spencer Gulf, South Australia on the headland known as Corny Point about 7.5 kilometres (4.7 mi) west of the town of Corny Point.

It was commissioned in March 1882 to assist southbound shipping to avoid hazards on the west coast of the peninsula south of Corny Point and to determine during darkness where Hardwicke Bay lies if required as a place of shelter from the weather. It was converted to automatic operation in 1920 and along with the demolition of the lighthouse keeper accommodation. The lighthouse has been listed on the South Australian Heritage Register since 24 July 1980.

  • Lovely view of rocky coastline and scrub close to car park. On unsealed road and consider combining with Berry Beach nearby. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

  • We drove quite a distance to get here and it was definitely worth travelling some unpaved roads, arriving just before sunset. It was sad to see the memorial of deaths in the area. Beautiful views all around. Loved the orange coloured rocks near the water. Cool to see the light flashing inside the lighthouse. It was first list on March 1st 1882.
  • An absolute must-see on the Yorke Peninsula. Fabulous views and easy access to Talcum Powder Beach. Very easy to park up, crack open a beer and just soak up the views.
