The main attraction is the Lighthouse. But we also did a quick tour of this trail. The view was stunning. Sundown is where its at. Recomended if you have time!

If its hot, this walk will take around one hour and it will be slightly challenging with some significant climb sections up to the lighthouse BUT - once you are up there it is utterly beautiful. The best way to see the bay. Flip Flops are no good for this walk as some sections are through the forest on sand... More

Beautiful walk with stunning views. Lots of stairs if you take that route. I've done this walk many times. You can begin it at The Pass or, further down the boardwalk or even from Byron Bay CBD if you want a longer walk. At the top there are toilets and water bubblers and a basic cafe, which isn't open early.... More

You can walk up to the Lighthouse in about 30min and get a fantastic view. I even saw wales from top of the hill. A little bit chilly up the due to the wind in winter but really recommend going there.

Every time we go to Byron we do the lighthouse trail. It is a great walk, beautiful scenery and a great spot to just sit back and relax!

I'd forgotten how beautiful this walk is. A must do for any visitor to the Bay. It's a very easy walk, take your own water bottle. Don't forget to take the little deviation at Little Wategoes is affords a terrific vantage point for photographers wanting to snap or video surfers in the early morning.

We started in one of the car parks and walked around 3kms all up, up and down hills and through the bushes. It's a very good path and easy to navigate, although the hills were hard at times! It's well mantained and sign-posted.

We started the trail from the centre of town and completely underestimated how strenuous it would be. It was a very warm day but only started at 3.30pm. We thought it could have been more signs as we walked around in circles a couple of times. We made it in the end.. The view was stunning and look forward to... More
