The lighthouse was closed for renovations, the Interpretive Centre was closed, the cost to walk up to the lighthouse was expensive and a toasted sandwich was $15. Don’t bother and save some money.More

We opted to do the 2km 'loop track' around the lighthouse. This was a nice flat walk and gave us panoramic views around the cape. We even startled a few kangaroos lazing on the path in the sun. After our walk we headed into the...More

The grounds of this lighthouse are very impressive. There is a deck area where you can have a seat and enjoy a drink or ice cream. The walk to the lighthouse has some detailed information and the lookout is fantastic.
