Shot in Jervis Bay at The Ruined Lighthouse in Broderee National Park as humpback whales swam past on their annual migration south. The lighthouse was built on the wrong spot and caused over 23 shipwrecks. The lighthouse keepers and family seemed to also be a magnet for tragedy, one keeper drowning while fishing with his sons, another keepers daughter was accidentally shot. Eventually the lighthouse was replaced with another at Point Perpendicular.
