Low Sea Rock Lighthouse is a luminous lighthouse, and its light has been extinguished. After sanditizing the Twin Peaks as a waterway, the city searched for another road to the sea and found it in the early 20th century along with the Harbour Bridge. The channel leading to this port is only mentioned from the sand and deepened. In order to delimit this waterway, two engineering contractors built two lighthouses. One of these two lighthouses is the Low Sea Rock Lighthouse built between 1905 and 1907. Together with the high lighthouse of Sea Rock, it provides a light for ships wishing to enter the harbor. For ships with a good course of 136 degrees, light can be seen, so the beams of low conductivity light and high conductivity light are located in one line. Due to the extension of the harbor, the lighthouse lost its function and the lights went out in 1983.
