We were unfortunate and had light showers and fairly big gusts rolling through while visiting. However the scenery was just amazing, the cliffs, flowers, sea... all beautiful. We were even lucky enough to spot 4 seals over on the Nuggets. The boardwalks and walking track around the lighthouse are wheelchair friendly.

Breathtaking views, and wheel-chair accessible too. Nice walk about 10mins in duration but longer because we were taking so many photos.

What fantastic weather we where blessed with today on our trip to the lighthouse. The scenery is excellent and it is very wheelchair friendly. A must see for all people who travel to the Freycinet national park.

This wonderful look at the coastline is very easy to get to, as elluded to by the previous reviewers. We had 4 generations in our party. Grandparents at 80 y/o to our grand niece at 3 y/o. Everyone made it to the lookouts. You can see north to the Friendly Beaches around to the south to Wineglass Bay. (A great... More

So often forgotten by people driving to and from the Freycinets, this lighthouse and more importantly the circuit walk takes in magnificent views towards Wineglass Bay and beyond. We saw seals and dolphins when we were there. It is a gentle (gravel and boardwalk) stroll suitable for a wheelchair and the elderly who may be unable to walk up to... More

We made a stop at Cape Tourville lighthouse on our drive back from A full day hiking around hazards beach and Wineglass Bay and I thought that the view was almost even more spectacular than the Wineglass Bay lookout. Definitely call in on your drive home. It's a short 600m circuit and is a nice easy boardwalk.

The view up here is a must see! As people say, it's more impressive than Wineglass Bay. The bush, the cliffs, the ocean, it's just gorgeous. The Lighthouse itself isn't anything exciting, actually that was a disappointment. But there was a surprising vantage point near some boulders looking back to the boardwalk that made for some great elevated pictures. Its... More

This is a lovely little walk and has very rewarding views, it's just as good as wine glass bay view point and much quieter.

We walked up - a short walk after a steep climb in the car. The views are amazing from this walk. We spotted seals over on The Nuggets from one lookout. I grabbed my long lens and snapped away. It's a pretty spot and since we couldn't find a park to do the Wineglass Bay walk - we saw the... More

Got caught behind a bus the whole way from Wineglass Bay car park that never thought to let us pass, going as slow as 10km/hr for uphill stretches. This was about 4pm in the afternoon, not sure if it could have been avoided by going earlier. But once there, the views are unbelievably good and well worth it. Highly recommend,
