  • We walked up to the tea house for breakfast, admired the museum gift shop, view and had a beautiful breakfast overlooking the ocean. i would recommend this on a trip to Nelson Bay.  more »
  • While the “lighthouse” was not what we expected (we were thinking traditional round lighthouse), the views were just spectacular! The road to the lighthouse is very narrow and there is limited parking...  more »

  • So so place.but nice view
  • Always treat to have morning tea, the view is ;great and so are the staff.
  • Great views of the ocean plus a mini store with good variety and good prices. All for a gold coin donation to walk through their little display museum and get a history lesson of all the vessels. Plus a cafe to enjoy the view.
  • Beautiful spot with some great views, worth visiting if you're in the area. There's a cafe there with good views too if you want to satay a little longer and take it all in.
  • It's a place with a very special aura. The view from the top is breathtaking. I was looking forward to taste some tea specialties but there isn't any. Little disappointed. The cake was nice.
