“Great walk & views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This review covers more of the walk than the lighthouse itself as we did not get to visit it. Rather we walked out along the seawall and enjoyed the view of the beaches, Newcastle and even saw a few seals. I would definitely recommend this a 'thing-to-do' when visiting Newcastle.

“Great walk, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Great for a walk around the Harbour watching the large boats being move in and out by tugs. The walk is good and the hill to the light house gets the blood pumping. Once up there the light house is a bit disappointing and needs some money spent on it to bring the house back to its glory. Spend some time watching the boats and tugs in action and even helicopters flying the pilots to the ships.

A great place to visit and has fantastic views over Newcastle, the River & Nobby's Beach. It's about a 10 min walk from the eastern end the city

“Great place for views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

After all my time living in newcastle I finally had the chance to visit the Lighthouse on one of the open days. With fantastic weather it provided a spectacular view of Newcastle.
