Travelled with young children and limited time therefore not able to do hiking. Very limited car parking at the lighthouse therefore only able to do a drive through. Great views though.

So many beautiful things to see on this walk. It is definitely worth doing. Took far too many photos. Stop off at the Byron Bay Café, although park near and not the car park as this is very expensive.

Gorgeous walk. Did this many times as a kid with my parents and returned to do it with my kids today. We parked a few beaches back and the walk was about 1.7km each way. Kids aged 3 & 5 were able to do it at a good pace, running half of it. It's a work out but easy to... More

Enough of a workout to feel good after it with great views of the sea and the most easterly point of Australia

We walked up along the beach and back through the rain forest. Even saw some dolphins off the coast!

We enjoy the walk here and went to the beach, the lighthouse cost money to park and I recommend you park your car in the beach then walk to the lighthouse, the way to the lighthouse is amazing.

We tried to "move it along" as we are reasonably fit and found the Lighthouse to Watego's Beach track fairly taxing but the views along the way from certain vantage points made it very wothwhile. Anyone can do this as long as you go at your own pace.

We adventured out to do the Lighthouse Trail to kick start our day which was great both on-road and off-road circuits.

The walk has excellent views and when we went we watched a pod of dolphins about 40 strong cruise by the lighthouse and close to the cliffs. Then 5 or 6 suddenly turned and surfed in and then jumped. Wonderful stuff. The walk to the end is quite tiring on a hot day so take plenty of water with you.... More

Interesting hike along the cliffs and beaches and through the bush to the lighthouse. Great views and interesting display at the lighthouse itself, Well worth doing if you are visiting Byron Bay
