We decided to go up here around 17:30 on our last night. It was a beautiful clear night. We chose to drive up most of the way as we had our 11 month old with us in stroller and the hill would have been quite...More

If you’re energetic you can hike to it. We drove. Worth the parking fee to see the fabulous views. There is a coffee shop so you can sit and relax taking in the views.

Arrived there last Wednesday afternoon to a very blustery welcome. The winds from Cyclone Oma were strong and whipping up the waves, Surfers were everywhere and traffic was very slow. It cost $8 to park up the top, but well worth it, because the walk...More

Been here several times and in all manner of weather. This time it was during cyclone oma which was producing Gail force winds and huge surf. It’s the number must do while in Byron.
