“Worth the walk”

Cape Moreton Lighthouse
Attraction details
Reviewed December 29, 2013

As with most attractions, you need to walk from the carpark… Once there, the views are breath takings

You can't go into this lighthouse, but you have to see it and the views from the top. At the right time of year (June-nov) you'll see the whales going past. The information centre is definitely worth a visit, lots a photos and history of the island in here. There is no cost to seeing the lighthouse, but you can make a donation at the information centre that goes towards preserving the lighthouse. While you at the top end check out the beaches, large nesting colonies of sea birds including pelicans will be meters from your car. Our school aged kids loved the lighthouse and rolling on the sand dunes set the northern point of the track that goes around the lighthouse grounds. The roads are pretty hard and bumpy up to the lighthouse, but not too bad. If approaching the lighthouse from the east coast there's a reasonably steep one-lanes track that takes you up from the beach, worthwhile checking no ones about to come down on top of your rig, some people don't keep there radios on. Great fishing spot in the north alcove where you turn off, you can't miss it cause you turn off when the beach stops at the cliff.

Great view and a good information center. You have a good chance of seeing whales during the migration. There are clean toilets there.

Whale watching cruise was excellent. Saw many whales and enjoyed following them.
4WD tour of northern end of island was also excellent, as was the nightly dolphin feeding sessions

Not too far to walk and the best views I have ever seen!! You can see dolphins and sea turtles frequently, we didn't see any whales but you can sometimes. Toilets available. Amazing experience!!
