The lighthouse dates to 1889 and stands on the promontory at the West side of the Murray River mouth. Painted white with vertical red stripes as it's day mark. It was initially operated by lighthouse keepers who lived in cottages on site. They operated the kerosene lamp, and the later gas conversion until 1920 when it was connected to a DC electric operation. Mains power was connected in 1978. Worthwhile visiting for the views alone.

We had a few hours up our sleeve before getting on the the spirit of Tasmania. So decided to go there look around and relax. Great spot , great views and plenty of parking easy to get to and back out to go to spirit.

Visited the Lighthouse on a bleak and rainy day, and the distinctive red stripes on the white background showed why this was an important design feature. Unfortunately our view over Bass Strait was restricted by the conditions.

You will find a decent sized carpark at the end of Bluff Access Rd, where you should make the time to take in the sights. The lighthouse is remarkable, but there are also tributes to people who have lost their lives from this roughed coastline, a lookout down a trail and over the rocks, and walking tracks to explore

Great views looking out to Bass Straight. There is also a lookout a short distance away where you can view the rocks below. On a clear day you can see all the way to Table Cape

The lighthouse isn't the attraction here - it isn't that big, you can't go inside it, and the drive out is not worth it for the building.

The view at the Bluff on the other hand is lovely and a good vantage point to watch the Spirit of Tasmania come in and out.

Mersey Bluff Lighthouse is a short drive from Devonport city. It’s worth a drive as the red and white painted lighthouse is located at the lookout which offers views of the coast.

We walked from Devonport centre to the lighthouse. Easy walking and beautiful views over the Bass Straits. The lighthouse is not open to the public but is well worth a visit. Very enjoyable outing.
