|Green Eastern Channel Light|
There are two channel light houses in the outer part of Sydney Harbour which are known as the Wedding Cakes, for fairly obvious reasons. The lighthouse with the green light is in the Eastern Channel (built in 1908) and the lighthouse with the red light is in the Western Channel (built in 1924).
There are about 30 lighthouses of various types dotted around Sydney Harbour indicating the deepest channels and warning of submerged reefs and other dangers. Over the years, upwards of 90 collisions have resulted in a vessel sinking. They are not all still on the harbour floor.
