“Views forever”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

This is glorious piece of Australian history with some of the most stunning views anywhere on our east coast. We were lucky enough to visit on a near perfect day of weather with a calm blue sea playing host to six pods of playful whales putting on a brilliant display of whale antics. Add this location to your visit list when in Port.

“Spectacular views”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Fantastic views, great place to spot whales and dolphins. Stairs to reach the top point but wonderful views can still be enjoyed from the car park.

Beautiful view, great for whale watching, or dolphin watching. Take a walk down the stairs to walk along Lighthouse Beach.
