Enjoy it during your visit

Enjoy it as part of your visit to the lighthouse. Not a must but if there do enjoy it. Nothing out of the ordinary.

I walked thru here with camea yesterday and let me say it was well worth the time. The area has it all it seems. Trees, critters, sand and beaches plus some friendly folks to help you out when you and if you get lost. If you have a couple hours do your self a favor and walk thru the area.

Great view and worth the visit. It is a really nice walk especially at sunset. Bringing the camera is a must.

After the hustle and bustle of a town full of back packers looking for a party, this was a wonderful contrast - a beautiful park with so much greenery, some birdlife and some great views of the beach and coastline

There are a couple of carparks around the light house but they fill up quickly and there is a small charge. The views are stunning and you will probable see dollfins, turtles and maybe sharks. The bird life is also varied to include sea eagles, pelicans etc. There was a cafe but when we were there it was been rebuilt... More

Fanatastic walk anythime of the day with ocean glimpses.Trck is not suitable for the very young or elderly as there are many exposed roots and the steptreads have dropped to more than they should be.

The lighthouse offers interesting beautiful views all 360º around. The walk around the conservation area path can be a little hard for the less fit but certainly worthwhile. Several animals, including birds and wallabies can be spotted around.
