Beautiful views, pity about car parking, needs more spaces, fee of $7.00 for top car park. Sites up and down the coast, watched paragliding while we were there, there is a launching site just below lighthouse

A great view when you use the cliff top route. Good exercise after a big night out in Bryon Bay. The stairs are easy to transverse & worth the effort when you get to the Lighthouse.

Great, pace run to get your morning started in Byron. The views are fabulous and the hill at the end is nice and steep to get your heart going. I'll always do this at least once when I visit Byron, it never gets old.

If you do one thing whilst here, this is it. Great views of the area where you can see a variety of wildlife. The lighthouse is nice to see and you can go to the most eastern point in Australia.

The Lighthouse Trail is definitely worth the climb - lovely scenery, great views of the bay (we saw dolphins!) some wildlife in the rainforest (turkeys, wallabies etc).

Beautiful, short but extremely varied loop trail that takes you though Cape Byron's rain forests, sandy beaches, up the easternmost shore outcrops of Australia, and - of course - past a lighthouse.

Well worth the hike up on a nice day. The views along the way are incredible and we even saw some whales.
