The view, the air, the whales... all brilliant. The parking can be a bit hectic... if you are not up to uphill walking , get dropped off at the top and picked up at the beach at the bottom.

A great place to be when the sun goes down. Taken beatiful photos of the lighthouse and surrounding.

The light house trail is a great way to spend the day and has the best view in town - take some water and snacks to keep you going and you bathers on a hot day to cool off at the beach

The lighthouse walk is a standard activity on a Byron trip! It is a beautiful track giving you the opportunity to see Tallow Beach & Clarkes Beach. Finish up your walk with a dip at Watego's or brekkie at Byron Beach Cafe - its beautiful!

Loved the nature walk, seeing the dolphins and whales. The view across the sea is spectacular and worth the challenge on the last bit of the walk. Go along the sea side of the walk.

This is a great walk (or run if you're so inclined), perfect to get the body going. Should do it every morning you're staying at Byron - it seems everyone else does.

Native vegetation on one side and gorgeous ocean vistas on the other. There are many steps and a gradual uphill climb. Not very difficult but a little challenging for very young kids with little legs.

Enjoyable walk up to the lighthouse and the eastern most point. Hilly but not too difficult a walk. Beautiful views along the way

Excellent walk and views, plus sighting a few whales. The walk isn't strenuous like reviews are saying, unless you're not relatively fit. We walked out to the point and back, with a 9 and 11 year old, with no problem. It's about 5km return. Parking is a nightmare, but worth the $7 if you can get a spot.
