In 2009 I stayed with my family at Green Cape. This is an isolated penninsular on the New South Wales coast, with former lighthouse cottages that you can rent as self-catering accommodation. It's off-grid and this rather sculptural object on the roof of a lean-to turned out to be the custom made muffler for the large generator which provides electricity
for the Green Cape Lighthouse complex. It was certainly effective, as
we never noticed anything more than a gentle background hum.
