4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Choice of trails all quite strenuous but great views all the way up. The easternmost part of Australia.

“Excellent walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We loved the walk from the car park to the lighthouse and beyond down to Wategos beach. Good lot of stairs on the way up to get the heart rate racing.

“A Byron icon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Stunning coastal rainforest trail with sea views all the way to the lighthouse and back to town, an hours round trip if you take the rainforest trail on the other side of the lighthouse. A must if you're a visitor to Byron!

“Stunning trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Having stayed a few times at Byron, my wife and I walk this trail normally twice a day. It has everything: coastal sub-tropical rainforest, great vistas over beaches, ocean and hinterland, cliff top trail, lighthouse, and some coffee shops (if you must). It is 3.7 km long, but beware, it includes some 700-odd steps. Wildlife includes bush turkeys (the feathered kind), lizards, and often one can see sting-rays and dolphins frolicking in the waves.
