Lovely track for bikes and walkers just stay to the left if walking uphill and keep your kids close to bikes can pass safely. Great view at the end and its a good loop around of about 2 klm

This is a top spot for locals and tourists as the 360 degree views are stunning. You can walk up (lots of stairs but manageable) or drive up. You will pay a fee to park unless you have a NPWS car pass. Lighthouse tours are available with volunteers. I'm yet to do a tour but understand that they are worth... More

Great to visit the park, guided tours of the lighthouse are available and there's a well marked and laid walking track to the most eastern tip of Australia if you're feeling energetic. Be warned, if you want to park close by there is a fee for parking.

Stunning and amazing panorama view over the ocean! We saw alot of whales and dolphins, and after just a quick ten minutes walk you can reach the oscean and take a quick and cooling swim. Spectacular view, bring your camera!

The lighthouse area is a very nice place to visit. Well maintained and organized. The walking tracks are very nice. We saw lots of dolphins during our walk. It is something for the whole family.

When in Byron Bay you must take a trip up to the lighthouse. The view back to Byron township and over Wategos Beach is breathtaking. You can watch the surfers and if your lucky, as we were, watch dolphins frolicking in the waves. We watched a pod of about 70 or so. A pristine, beautiful coastline that is pure magic.

Absolutely this is the top attraction of Byron Bay, it was the third time here in Byron and the first visit here at the cape. Very exciting adventure, a place full of nature trails and breathtaking views, with a little 'luck you might see dolphins swimming near the shore, it happened to me. In addition, you can walk along the... More

Cape Byron is a must see. There is a $7 fee for parking or you can park at the bottom of the cape and walk up. The view is great with friendly staff that are more than happy to share story's of the lighthouse and ships that have been wrecked near Byron Bay. The little cafe has great coffee.
