The walk and surrounds were beautiful. Such an amazing part of the world. We went mid morning and saw a pod of dolphins which we followed around the headland. It was magic. It is the most Easterly point of the Australian main land and is well worth the visit. After our walk and exploring we had a coffee at the... More

This is a good place to spend a little time, walking the track, visiting the lighthouse and swimming or sitting on the beach. The circuit track from the base to the lighthouse is popular for exercise and has lots of places to stop and enjoy the view.

A visit to the lighthouse in Byron Bay is a must. The view is magnificent and the most easterly point of Australia. For a donation you can go on a tour of the lighthouse which is great!

Great trip round the point here. Stop off at the top for a coffee. Stunning views over the bay, and if you are lucky you may catch sight of a whale or two. Intresting walk through a Naturepark, so watch out for the wildlife

Visiting Cape Byron never disappoints, regardless of the weather. The scenery is just magnificent! It is worth walking up from Wategos beach as parking up top can be difficult in peak season and at $8 a pop, not particularly cheap, although no doubt the money goes to a good cause! But the walk up (and back down again) is definitely... More

We love going up to the lighthouse and lookout when we are in Byron. Great sport to see whales, dolphins and turtles. A must for Byron visitors.
