  • Excellent location for a photoshoot. The lighthouse was glowing and really beautiful at sunset. Drive or walk up there towards sunset, the lighthouse is closed by then but it is much more beautiful at that time. The view of the sea is also amazing.
  • Most easterly point of Australia! Get there to spot whales and dolphins on a good day. The views to Byron bay and rock heads are amazing. Get there by bicycle as parking is small and overpriced 8$. Free museum in the lighthouse ran by great volunteers.
  • Most easterly point of Australia. You're literally the first people to see the sunrise in the morning. Why wouldn't you???? BUCKET LIST. Gorgeous. Also great for night or morning runs. It's extremely uphill but if you're in shape it's great.
  • Lovely views plenty of whales and dolphins to see, we are told that the whale viewing season ends around October we visited at the beginning of November and have seen plenty. Food is limited but nice at the cafe with tea and coffee being the usual price (2 teas and 3 cakes cost us $24) Be warned there are only limited car parking spots at the top approx 20 so unless you wait you will have to get parked somewhere else, we parked in a small car park just heading back down from the top and walked back up, cost for car park $4 per hour.
  • Great spot for photos. A bit of a walk. There are two ways to get to the top, alongside the road or along the footpath. The footpath is obviously more safe but the road is faster.
