It is a dangerous, isolated and forsaken place. But for most of the 1900s Tasman Island was a thriving lighthouse station, home to one of Australia’s tallest lighthouses, three lighthouse keepers, their families and their farm. It was always difficult to find people who could bear the trials of living and working in this wild, inaccessible outpost located just off Tasmania’s south-east coast. The winds on the island are so strong the lighthouse tower used to violently sway and tanks full of water would literally fly off the island, as a pig sty once did with the Christmas pig still inside it.
John Cook would wear pyjamas, four sets of clothes and a rug in an attempt to stay warm. Every twenty minutes the on-duty keeper would have to register on a clock that they were still awake, with the records sent to Hobart each quarter for scrutiny. Every three hours keepers would relay weather reports to nearby Bruny Island. They were not permitted to leave the tower during their shift. During the day the keepers would be required to look seawards every half an hour and report any vessels they saw, in between tending to never-ending maintenance on the island and the small farm they ran for fresh milk and meat.
