The Light Between Oceans – 6

While the lighthouse and Janus Island scenes for the movie, “The Light Between Oceans”, were shot in New Zealand (see previous blog), the town of Stanley on the north coast of Tasmania was used as the setting for Partaguese, the town in the novel.

M. L. Stedman, in the novel, used the town of Augusta in the south west corner of Western Australia as the setting for Partaguese. Augusta is in an amazing location at the mouth of the Blackwood River, against a backdrop of a forest of tall karri trees and with a dramatic coastline. But the town has few buildings from the 1920s and a not so picturesque main street (see below).
