  • Be warned it is a good 1 hour drive each way from the ferry to the lighthouse. The good news is it is a great drive on a good road. There is not a lot of parking at the end of the road so be prepared to park and walk the last bit. The parking congestion also restricts access for camper vans and larger rigs. Regardless it is worth the effort and great views. Lighthouse tours are also available for a fee. The museum adjacent to the carpark is very good and free.
  • It's a bit of a drive, but so very serene and beautiful here! It feels like you're a the edge of the world! The lighthouse was neat, but take the path down and visit Lighthouse Bay beach for sure. The water is cold, but it's very peaceful and calming!
  • Loved the history behind the place. Mind blowing what early settlers had to go through to build this and the views around are worth the trip.
  • Fantastic view. Tough to park down the end of the road if it's busy. But a walk won't hurt you. Can't wait to come back again.
  • Worth visiting. The tour guide (his name was Matt) did a very good job in explaining the history behind the lighthouse. A bit far but worth it. Quick tip : not always gps signals work in finding this lighthouse. Use your google maps. I found the route to lighthouse using google maps
