Walked the island (refer to review on the island) and had a look at the lighthouse! Wasn’t open just had a look around! Worth a stop and look around! Great backdrop!

Worth going for a walk to see the wildlife and lighthouse. You don't need that long as it can be done in a short amount of time.

We loved Griffiths Island, during the day for a walk and in the evening the watch the return of the Shearwaters to their nests. A lovely little walk around a coastal island.

It's not normally open. But the info boards on the walk to and from the lighthouse illuminate what it must have felt like to live/work here

A walk to take about an hour around the island with some interpretation boards around the track. We saw several types of fish in the lagoons and a wallaby lurking in the undergrowth. A protected Shearwater (mutton bird) colony exists on the island.

Nice walk with lots to see - kangaroos, birds, views and historic boards to read along the way. Great for both young and old.

Thos is a good circular walk past the Shearwater breeding area and past the old lighthouse. Heavy seas crashing in were spectacular.
