Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a lovely light house. Easy to find. Plenty of parking. Cost $10 for a tour inside. Which we didn’t do. They have accommodation at the light house keeper’s quarters. Which would be interesting to do. Was lovely visit

The tour was amazing! Kim was a lovely tour guide and we learnt so much about the history of the lighthouse and surrounding area. Definitely worth the low cost of the tour, should be much more expensive!!! Definitely recommend this activity.

The sea view is breathtaking! I miss seeing this kind of landscape so much!
The light house is clean and bright. There is a tour available but we didn't join it.
The wind was quite strong on our visit.
If we didn't have activities, we would like to spend long time at the lighthouse. stun

the lighthouse looked great and there is accommodation there as well but has to be booked in advance. The view is outstanding. There are tours but book those as well as it was closed when we were there,

Fantastic local attraction 90 mins driving distance from Sydney.

It had great sea views, views and more views. We loved the lighthouse, great rock platform and landscape right at the sea. The first thing we noticed was the sound from the sea waves from the lighthouse. Kids loved the opportunities to locate sea crabs and fishes swimming under clear Waters.

Let the pictures do the talking!

A well maintained. lighthouse in a lovely setting. You can take a tour and climb the 96 steps to the top. There are steps down to the beach where there is a large flat rock area. There are lighthouse tours most days and they are reasonably priced at $10 per adult.

Disappointed that it was closed on Australia Day, as plenty of tourists around, and our grandson would have liked it. Plenty of plaques though showing the history.
View to the sea is calming and spectacular.
Also parts of it now used for accomodation.

We did the coastal walk to the lighthouse from the carpark near the general store, and back along the beach. Lighthouse was very well maintained and lovely to photograph.

Good views up and down the coast, especially in a lightning storm. Coastal walks and accommodation available in the lighthouse keepers houses.
