"Weirs Cove is located at the southwest corner of Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island, on the east side of Cape du Couedic Lighthouse. Barrage Bay is the place where the Kuaidik Point Lighthouse used to land when there was no land traffic in the early days. A wharf was built here in 1907, along with a steep cliff pulley system called "Flying Fox", and a warehouse for storing items was built on the cliff. During the 24 years from 1907 to the early 1930s, all the supplies provided to the lighthouse guards and their families, from food to fuel, and fuel used by the lighthouse, were all transported from the sea to here by steamer and transferred to small boats. When the weather is good, it will land again and be transported by the cliff pulley system to the 90-meter-high cliff. At that time, even tourists came up from here. The supply of supplies is every three months or longer, and there is a distance of 3 kilometers from the Kuaidik Point Lighthouse. The lighthouse keeper and his family (a total of 3 families) live in 3 buildings on the north side of the lighthouse. Inside the hut, supplies were transported from the warehouse in Barrage Bay to the family area near the lighthouse, relying on two horses named Mike Mac and Dolly. The two horses were officially opened from 1909 to the 1930s. At the beginning, he has been acting as a messenger of this kind of transportation, and it also includes sending and receiving letters from the lighthouse guards to Rocky River once every two weeks. When you come to Weir Bay and understand all of this, you will be immersed in the work and life of the lighthouse keeper at that time, how hard it was and how isolated it was. Land transportation began in the Barrage Bay in 1930. In the mid-1940s, the first truck drove from the Rocky River on the rugged dirt road. This is another change since Barrage Bay from the "Flying Fox" cliff pulley system. We went to Kangaroo Island by boat from Adelaide. We stayed on the island for three days and two nights. We rented a car on the island and stayed at the Far Away Escape B&B in Kingscote. On the first day, I went to Cape Willoughby Conservation Park and the American River area; on the second day, we departed from Seal Bay, then Little Sahara Desert, Breeze Bay, Hansen Bay, all the way to Flinders Tsai National Park; On the third day, I went to Kingscote, Emu Bay Lavender Farm, and Penneshaw, and had a great time!
