“Worth the walk”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We walked up to the lighthouse and past the most easterly point of Australia. AMAZING views, definitely worth the walk. Can still do it even you're unfit like me. We walked back down the other side to Captain Cook lookout too but couldn't see much other than a car park and trees. Definitely worth the views on the way up and at the top though!

“most eastern point in mainland Aus”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Good view of the ocean. Can be windy and rainy, and depending on the season rain may come quickly.

Check the box by visiting the eastern-most point in mainland Australia!

“They are charging now”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

An iconic piece of East Coast geography - views on a clear day to die for and great in whale watching season - but don't drive up there - they charge for car parking now

“Worth a look”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Good to review the eastern horizon from Australia's most eastern point. We were lucky enough to see a pod of maybe 15 bottle nosed dolphins while there. Views north and South along the coast give a great sense of the immense ness of the coastline.
