There is about a four km return walk from the carpark if the gate to the light house is closed. The walk is up hill in parts but follows the coast and provides some nice views. The views are good at the lighthouse and there is another short walk to the wreck of the SS Saros, though this could be...

Was everything id hoped it would be nature at its best whales dolphins seals wombats marsupials. Had a great kayak trip down the wilderness coast spotted dingoes on the beach. Bungalow is basic but all you need great wood fire views of base straight. Tour of the lighthouse and information provided on history was great, very friendly and interested lighthouse...

This is a place to contemplate the sea, sky, and spot some whales. The lighthouse is an hour down a dirt road in a remote part of Gippsland in Victoria so pick up supplies in Cann River or better still a bigger town elsewhere before you go in - cos it's a long way to the shop if you want...

My grandfather was the chief engineer on the SS Saros when it was shipwrecked at Point Hicks on 23rd Dec 1937. So a visit to see the remains of the wreck and stay in the lighthouse keepers cottage was a must for us. And long overdue! It was fantastic. What a beautiful, secluded area and the lighthouse and surrounding buildings...

The drive to get there is 20 km of gravelled road. We figured it was not easy to drive with a campervan. Luckily it wasn't too busy. It's a big climb. Little bit of a hike. Estimated 600 steps. But the view is spectacular. Once you get to the top you will be able to see the green fields on...

We had one night in Cottage 2, would recommend at least 2 nights! The cottage is the original assistant lighthouse keepers cottage and is beautifully maintained. Very comfortable and clean, we all enjoyed a peaceful nights sleep listening to the the waves. Loved sitting on the veranda and watching for passing whales, even saw some breaching. Seals were sunning themselves...

Our second visit to Point Hicks Lighthouse. It's out of the way, no mobile reception, so it's a great escape. Our host was Susie and she made us feel right at home. We went as a group of 6 friends and found all the facilities we needed (although don't expect to many mod-cons). We all slept wonderfully from the sea...

We enjoyed 1 night in 'The Cape Bungalow' - probably converted from storage rooms. It offered a combined kitchen, dining, lounge, separate queen size bedroom - the bathroom located a short walk outside via the fantastic coastal views. The view from the kitchen window was of the ocean and directly at the lighthouse. The facilities were basic but comfortable. We...

We stayed one night at the cottage at Point Hicks. Barbara was our guide, and she greeted us like old friends and even helped us unload the car. The house was made up so that we could just settle in. We couldn't believe that we could just sit on the front verandah and look up at the most beautiful lighthouse....

“The 'Bungalow' is great for couples, although does not have a verandah to sit outside under if the weather is not so good. The 2 duplex cottages are much larger, have an inside bathroom & a shared verandah. Regardless of where you stay - the views are amazing.”
