GIVEN its name, you'd think Cape Clear would be situated somewhere along the coastline.
But that's far from the case.
This tiny community, which consists of a primary school, general store and hotel, is located about 100km from the nearest coast, some 35km outside of Ballarat.
There's a wide range of stories about how the town got its name, but most centre around Irish settlers that were in the region during the gold rush.
Born and bred local Dennis Burns, who is a part-time barkeeper at the Cape Clear Hotel, detailed one of the tales that is common among the townsfolk.
"Originally the story was years ago that Cape Clear was a mining town and you had this old Irishman, who had his horse and cart and the wheel might have fallen off," he said.
"Apparently this Irish fella's cart tipped over or the wheel fell off or something similar to that. He put up a sign and it was supposed to be 'keep clear' but it was spelt 'cape clear' and that's how the original story started."
Burns was part of the group of locals that decided to have a bit of fun with the Cape Clear name and helped build a 13m lighthouse with working light.
"It was just a bit of a gimmick. The town's people got together and it was always a bit of an idea to have a lighthouse because it is an inland Cape and it is the only inland Cape in the world, apparently," Burns said.
"It's just a bit of a gimmick for the town. Everyone got together and helped build it. I painted it and everyone pitched in as a bit of a community project and it turned out really good."
