The trail to light house and the most easterly point of Australia is a nice and easy hike that will take you 30 min - 1 hour but on a really hot day, the heat and the sun can make it a bit harder.

Really enjoyed our walk. Best to do early in the morning to beat the heat. Was a spectacular view from the top. Bring some water and wear good walking shoes.

Parking available on several stops but personally feel like the steep walk up adds to the view at the top!

I highly recommend doing the walk up to lighthouse, the views are breath taking and a nice café up top for a cold drink once you get up there.

lovely walk there and back, would definitely do it again. It was a little drizzly when we got half way up to the lighthouse but refreshing at the same time. On the walk back we got drenched to the bone but what can you do!...More

Get your tennies on or go barefoot-- this is a great walk, if you don't mind the steep incline. The views are epic along the way.

The walk to the Lighthouse was nice. We could see whales and dolphins. It may get quite crowded so it's important to pick good time to visit.

For me it was a hard walk but I managed it, my cousin kept telling me we were almost there, not sure I’ll ever believe her again. I’m not fit and overweight but I’m so glad I managed it. The views on the way up...More

Fantastic trail with great views but you need to be moderately fit as there are steep staircases and a hot day can be quite challenging. Very much worth the effort though.

We arrived after visiting the Gold Coast, which was very beautiful also. We were recommended to take the trail up to the lighthouse. We started by walking on the beach then eventually to the trail. We were able to see some amazing beaches on the...More

Couple of hours depending on how many times you stop to take selfies/photos. Take plenty of water if it’s hot. Take the coastal route up to the lighthouse which we think is better than doing it in reverse.
