Correct Doug, one of only two vertically striped lighthouses that I know of in Australia. Mersey Bluff lighthouse greets all travellers on the Spirit of Tas as they arrive in Devonport.

Over to you.

Ok folks, whoever can tell me the following can have the the next as I am going out of internet range now.

"In 1880 a group of farmers started their own coffee plantations in northern New South Wales and Far North Queensland. Starting with a bang, this first foray into coffee growing resulted with international recognition, winning awards in Paris and Rome."

Over to whoever.

Cheers

Doug
