  • A very tall light used for hundreds of years to lighten the path of sailors in the area. It looks indeed like a pillar and definitely is like one. The area around is grassy and there is a barracks underneath (luckily covered to stop people falling).A road connects this and a short walk from parking Pays off.
  • Awesome spot, great for photographers, especially during sunrise/sunset.
  • Wollongong in a nutshell - beautiful views but don't look south - the steelworks are UGLY! If you're lucky, you may see a pod of dolphins and VERY occasionally, whales.
  • A nice place to walk around and take in the great views! And tap into your inner child and grab some ice cream from the ice cream truck parked near by!
  • Great views and good parking
