  • Good views from the top, and some interesting notes on the providence of the place. The island was an important post in WWII but was in use long before this. Did you know it was built by Aboriginal convicts in the 1800s? Yep. Unsavoury. Anyway if you like lighthouses, this is one, and if you like steps it’s got 159 of them.
  • Nice stop for views across the island. A few benches to stop and have some lunch on. Quokkas appeared out of nowhere. No toilet or water fountain here.
  • Good views from the top, overall a nice little stop. Not overly interesting, 3 stars for the view but you do pay a fee to access the top
  • The best views from the top of the lighthouse. Amazing structure and the voluntary guides do a fantastic job.
  • Interesting tour up on top of the lighthouse. Fantastic scenery and thanks to Rose the guide who give us an insightful knowledge of the lighthouse.
