If you do one thing in Byron Bay, make sure you do the Lighthouse at sunset! It's a bit of walk up the steps - quite steep at some points, but the ocean views are quite spectacular. Make sure you take a bottle of water with you - it's thirsty work! Once at the top of the lighthouse, you will... More

Got told by staff at a camp site we stayed in to visit this place and I was so stoked that I did with my partner and friends. Truly amazing and the views are truly magic. The trail to the bottom was beautiful. Parking at the top cost $8 but well worth. This I'll recommend to family and friends as... More

I didn't come to Byron Bay for the beach because I knew it would be swarming with people, I also don't trust the waters (not keen on becoming shark feed). However I really wanted to see this 1901 lighthouse on the easternmost point of Australia. We were really lucky to be able to park up near the lighthouse because there... More

If you are going to Byron Bay this is probably a must. It is a long walk from town and a long way up. You can drive up if you have a car and parking is $8.00. Once at the lighthouse well worth it and the tracks down to the tip aren't to bad.

Treat your eyes to whatever the sky has to offer and visit the Lighthouse at sunrise. Such a beautiful walk and well worthy the early start!

Absolutely beautiful views the whole way up. You can take a car or walk. I walked with my entire study abroad class. Lots of sunshine and not much shade going up, so definitely bring water, wear a hat, and use sunscreen. The entire treck up, you have a view of the ocean. And it absolute took my breath away. There's... More

The lighthouse is beautiful and the view of the ocean around it is mesmerizing. Lovely little coffee shop there too to sit and admire the view and watch whales during whale season.

The lighthouse walk is a Must! Try going on the Tallow ridge track, you need to be slightly fit, but incredibly views in the bush, still end up at the lighthouse. The track starts at Lees lane. We do this walk every day we're in Byron and look forward to it every day.

We went on a weeknight pre sunset. Parking to be able to walk up was unsuccessful due to good surf bringing all the surfers to the beach. Driving is tight on the roads surrounding with all the parked cars too. We parked at the lighthouse for $8.00. It was well worth it as we prob wouldn't have been able to... More
