This gathering also presents an opportunity for members and friends of Lighthouses of Australia to meet and build friendships and relationships out of our common interest that will take LoA Inc forward in looking after our lighthouse heritage, not just for ourselves, but those who come after us.

Friends who wish to join Lighthouses of Australia Inc can do so on the day.

We will all meet and register at the Maritime Museum and take the tour.

When you confirm your attendance you will need to indicate which of the following you wish to undertake so we can organise bookings and passes:

Interact with GARC

Tour of Fort Queenscliff, OR Pt Lonsdale Lighthouse tour

For the 'Interact with GARC' (Geelong Amateur Radio Club International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend) at the Fort and 'Tour of Fort Queenscliff' we will need the full name and phone number for all those wishing to attend.  Sorry folks, it's all the 9/11 security stuff as this a defence facility.

The Maritime Museum, Fort Queenscliff, and Pt Lonsdale Lighthouse tours are being conducted especially for Friends and Members of Lighthouse of Australia so we need the numbers to confirm these tours going ahead

If you would like to be involved in this day, please reply well before Friday 14th August 2004 and we will add you to the register of those attending.

Don't forget to indicate which tours you are taking.
