Overview

Beautifully restored Lighthouse Keepers Quarters dating back to 1903. The Lighthouse Keepers Quarters consist of two recently upgraded 3 bedroom cottages located on the headland with magnificent ocean vistas. On site hosts are at your beck and call. Sleeping up to 8 people in each fully self contained cottage. Norah Head is the perfect escape for a romantic weekend for two or a family week away. With more upgrades in the near future the Lighthouse Trust looks forward to welcoming many more visitors through working lighthouse.

An active lighthouse with plenty of history. The views and a walk along the massive rock pools make a worth while stop. The $20 for a family visit to the lighthouse is a little steep however.More

Always good when they look after a landmark like this and allow tours inside. The guides are friendly and have knowledge of the lighthouse and surrounding area.
