The 2022 International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend (ILLW) was held over the weekend of Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2022.
I was unable to get out to activate a lighthouse this year, so whenever possible I snuck out to the shack to work some of the lighthouses.
I worked a total of 22 Australian lighthouse activators.
