Points of Interest

1. Parking

Park where you can find a spot and head down to the beach.

2. Clarkes Beach

You will probably see a lot of surfers off this beach as the waves are often great here.

3. Leaving the beach

Take the path up through the woods to the road and head out on the path along the rocky shore through the woods. Take the time to read the interpretive signs you will pass as well.

Feel free to head down to the beach to explore the area.

5. Viewpoint

You will have great views from this spot along the rocky shore and up towards your next viewpoint. You may see surfers in Watego Beach as well.

6. Lighthouse Viewpoint

From this viewpoint you will have views up towards the lighthouse and back down the trail you just came up.

Here you are at the Cape Byron Lighthouse. You will have great views. Take the time to explore the area and take photos. From here head back the way you came. I provided a different way for you to go back if you'd like something a little different.
