Karl Rowbottom

Pharology (the study of Lighthouses!)

Karl was born at Deloraine in 1948, and moved to Burnie with his parents in about 1955, after they had spent a short time living in Geelong.

Karl had an ambition to become a lighthouse keeper from the age of 4! This dream was realised in 1971 to 1973.

He spent 3 years as a tour guide at the Table Cape lighthouse until he retired in 2013. He now devotes most of his time to Pharology (the study of Lighthouses!)
