Have you ever....

Been to a lighthouse? Finally got to visit aussie tv icon from around the twist. Views from the lighthouse are awesome, but dont try using the binoculars.. stole my $2. Also - be prepared to pay $8 parking to take your car in.
Pity the lighthouse wasn't open for people to see inside and nor was the gift shop.
Overall - may aswell go see it if you are in Byron Bay.

Near the iconic lighthouse with spectacular views, Great for walks. Neat little cafe. Easy parking. Excellent for people who like to hike from elsewhere to the lighthouse.

Beautiful byron

Such a beautiful view. So worth the walk to the top. Take your camera. We saw whales on our walk up there. Its very busy you may have trouble getting a park. Thete is some parking near the top but its a small lot and its a paid parking.

Views are worth it
Jun 2021
What a lovely tour done by a very knowledgeable gentleman that clearly had a love for Byron Bay. The views from the top of the lighthouse were absolutely amazing.

Postcard views

Was so good to see. The carpark gets pretty full and need to pay. we were luckly to find a park half way up and walked a short way to the light house. The view is amazing and worth either the hike or drive to get to the lighthouse. We visited in the COVID times with border closers etc and the place was super busy with people still. Wouldn't like to visit with travel is normal, Byron Bay will be too crowed and packed.
So glad we made the trip to visit Byron for the day for QLD.

Stunning views! A must-do if you visit Byron. There is a little café near the lighthouse where you can grab a coffee and enjoy the view.

Awesome views - and WHALES!!!
Jun 2021
Great spot to get an awesome view - and see some whales - yep lucky enough to see some breaching off shore - so added bonus.

Great easy walk (with stairs) to most easterly point of Australia - so has to be done.

Parking at top limited ($8 for about an hour). Parking attendant very good - was lucky to score a park. But parks further down the hill as well.

Cafe very basic - but has icecream!

Brilliant scenery
May 2021
The lighthouse is in an extrordinary location with fabulous views. It is located high above the coastline with great views in every direction.

They've done a great job in providing walkways down from the lighthouse to other vantage points where you can admire the area including the most easterly spot in Australia.

Well worth visiting. Bring your camera.

Must see sight
Apr 2021
Cape Byron Lighthouse is worth the effect to see. You are able to drive up to the top and pay for an hours parking - although the carpark is not that large. There is a carpark further down that charges $4- per hour (a bit of a climb for the unfit). Great spot for photos. Breathtaking scenery.
