The original site of the first lighthouse in the area. it was also a military emplacement during WWII. The lighthouse is no longer operating from there. There is now a small café in the building. Not really wheelchair accessible

A great location to take in the colours and sights of the entrance to Port Stephens. Easy access with only some stairs to navigate. The lighthouse provides a great location to take in the natural beauty of the area. Popular coffee shop appeared busy during our visit.

A must visit. Looking out over the white sand and ocean water whilst having a fabulous coffee - it just doesn't get better than that.
