  • Fantastic views from every direction out across the bay and the coastlines well worth the walk up to the lighthouse 
  • I was on a holiday down at byron bay and walked up to the light house. the walk was pretty long but definitely worth it! The sun looked amazing! 
  • There is limited parking (and it's not cheap). I would recommend parking down and Wategos Beach and walking up the cape byron walking track as you get to see a lot more and there was more parking down...  read more »
  • One of the best places I love in Australia. Very scenic, very peaceful. Sounds of ocean water is so soothing there. We have to drive through a small town. The Town is very beautiful too.
  • Took our campervan up here during the fall. Can see parking being an issue when it's really busy. The road is tight so it wasn't easy to navigate the campervan but doable. Great view.
  • Firstly if you haven't been here, just do your self a favor and try it out. It's such an incredible experience. There' parking available near the light house and a small ( and awesome) cafe nearby. Now to the light house it self, this is one of the best tourist spots that i could recommend to anyone. The view is incredible and great for photos, it provides a 360 degree view of Byron Bay and the ocean. If you're up for a challenge (and don't mind some sweating) and you want to step up your game, you can follow the foot path that brings you all the way down to cliffs and the beach. There's free tours available that that tell you the history and let you climb the lighthouse, tickets are available down in the museum. If you time it right, the tour guide said you get to see dolphins and whales jump out the water.
  • This place is absolutely beautiful. The light house is a beautiful building, but honestly you should go there for the views. If you're lucky you'll even spot some whales!
  • About 45 minutes drive from Coolangatta Airport. Made a trip to Gold Coast, en route to Byron Bay to visit Cape Byron Lookout, Byron Lighthouse and Pacific Ocean. Cooling pacific breeze, sweeping ocean waves, seagulls and wind surfers packed this place. Byron Town is a rustic old fashioned street with many shops, restaurants and cafes. A good touring experience.
