Fabulous views, spotted a pod of Dolphins from the viewing platform once we reached the Lighthouse. Good walk from beach car park, great work out and really enjoyed the lovely view. Seats along the route to rest if the hike up gets too much in the heat.

A great tour along some gerat spots! A must do when in Byron. It is around a 2 Hour tour if you stay at some places and enjoy the stunning nature!

The walk can start at "The Pass" or a bit shorter if you star at the eastern end of Wategos Beach. As others have said, it is a bit strenuous, mostly stairs as you rise up the headland to the lighthouse. Well worth it for the views along the way, as well as the native flora. Do take some water...

Brilliant and the view was amazing helps to be just a little bit fit definitely worth the time to do it, you might even seen a whale if it is that time of the year or dolphins ...would recommend wearing a hat, and sunscreen and talking some water with you. Happy hiking

This walk is quite long but it's so worth it. The beaches are breathtakingly beautiful, we saw dolphins in the sea below us and there is a little cafe at the top so you can grab a cold drink. Definitely would recommend it just so you can take photos and say wow!

Beach, rainforest, views to Mt Warning. It is worth the effort. Bring your swimmers to cool down after the climb at Wategoes Beach.

Great views and amazing beach. In the right season in a good day you can enjoy the magnificent whales on their way to the north or back.

We walked this on a hot day and it was easy to walk and beautiful scenery along the way. We even saw koalas close up. Definitely recommend it.

Park down at Clarkes Beach and walk up from there. It is a great walk and the last of the free parking that I found. The views from the Lighthouse are great and the walking trail is easier from the top heading down. Takes a couple of hours but worth it.

The walk to the light house is very easy and offers a great view of the eastern coast. Come in the middle of the year and the chances of seeing humpback whales are almost certain.
