Best view of Byron Bay & surrounds of tranquil, beautiful clear waters. We were lucky to see some dolphins too. The walk on the trail is a must do to get there a great work out or drive up if needed, car park is short distance away for a small number of cars.

Great walk from Byron to take in sunset before the local runners and walkers all turn up, nice area just to chill and watch the world go bye

Excellent views over Byron Bay and cliffs.not a good thing - all park places are busy and you will not find a parking place for motor-home. The street to the lighthouse is very very narrow and steep.

The Cape Byron Lighthouse is situated on the most Easterly point of the Australian mainland...and is well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a road to the base of the lighthouse, but parking can be difficult and expensive. You can park in streets near the bottom of the hill and walk up as an option.... More

We had a quick look at the light house. There is not much parking but the view is great. It's worth getting out of the car to visit the Eastern most part of Australia.

Was a beautiful drive to the lighthouse. many photos and the scenery was amazing. worth a visit if you are in Byron Bay. the parking was a bit high $8 dollars just to be there a hour as you would only stay 10 minutes just to take photos.

We made the walk to the lighthouse on a hot summers day. The lighthouse itself is lovely; very well kept and a great landmark, however i found the journey (cape Byron walking trail) better than the destination in this case. I would highly recommend those visiting the lighthouse to take the walk rather than drive. Albeit, still worth a visit... More

We saved the lighthouse walk for our last day in Byron Bay. It rained of course! We still walked the loop with our 4 yr old. She walked the entire loop. Nice forest and beach views. A little crowded but completely understandable.
