Gereaux Island Light
 

Located at the mouth of Byng Inlet in Georgian Bay.

The pyramidal wooden tower with attached single story dwelling has been referred to as a "Georgian Bay" style light. There are six similar lights in the area.

This light is 48-feet tall and sits on a small rock outcropping. The station is a summer rescue station and visitors are welcome.

The present light was built in 1880 to replace an 1870 structure.
