The beach and ocean scenery on this walk is stunning. It is a mixture of boardwalk and steps. Well worth it.

If you are thinking of doing this with a pram, don't do it. I was stupid enough to attack this with a toddler in a pram and even though I thoroughly enjoyed it, I was in the hurt locker the next morning. In saying that, if you like a fitness challenge, this is a good one for you. I didn't... More

This is a great trail along the headland that let's you watch the whales as they migrate - south while we were there. Great way to enjoy a great place.

Saw my very first pod of 25-30 dolphins swimming alongside the lighthouse - absolutely majestic. A nice walk to do early in the morning when it's quieter. Keep an eye out for all the weird and wonderful flora and fauna.

What a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and be rewarded with spectacular scenery. Quite a few stairs if you do the whole loop but well worth the effort. Beautiful beaches, rainforest, ocean views (and whales if you are lucky) so your legs hardly notice!

A nice walk to do, plenty of views to see some are well worth the walk! I highly recommend we cycled here! Didn't take too long!

The lighthouse walk is not only a favourite with tourists but with locals too. It meanders through coastal rainforest, cliff top views, beautiful beaches and of course our lovely lighthouse. At the right time of year you can watch whales from the cliffs.

What a great walk! Not too difficult but challenging enough and great views with interesting history and wild life.. You cant go to byron without going up to the lighthouse.. Its an unofficial rule =]

Great views all the way with a fantastic reward at the top. I would recommend going in the early evening as its begging to cool to catch the sunset or do it the other way round for sun rise. Respect to the guy who took a Rickshaw to the top!
