You could just drive up there for a quick look at the view, but its $8 to park, so you might as well make the most of it! The lighthouse & buildings are lovely, and the museum really interesting. If you have paid to park then you can also have a free guided tour of the Lighthouse itself. Small groups of 10 are taken every half-hour and the Guides are delightful, knowledgeable, amusing & personable. 3 sets of 23 steps take you to the open terrace just below the light, and on a sunny day, the light dancing on the prisms is magical. Nie little cafe for refreshments too.

Well worth the climb for the amazing views. Probably the best view is over Tallows Beach from the lighthouse rather than Byron Bay itself which is always packed with people. Tallows Beach on the other hand is virtually empty by comparison.

Cape Byron lighthouse is a must-see stop if you are in Bryon Bay. It has become an icon tourist spot being at the most easterly point of Australia and shining a light over Byron Bay. The lighthouse was built at the turn of the century and was built to protect ships passing along the coast. It is automated and can clearly be been seen from the township of Bryon Bay.
There are car parks at the top as well as a cafe, small gift shop and toilet. If you feel up for a walk, park down the bottom and walk up.
The lighthouse is great to see, however, the main attraction has to be the amazing views of the ocean out to the hinterland and coast where you regularly see humpback whales, turtles and dolphins which we were lucky to see that day.
If you are feeling alittle more adventurous there are loads of walking paths around the surrounding coastline so make sure you give yourself plenty of time.

The light house is in pristine condition and has some old accommodation which are now rental cottages. There's also a small museum detailing the build and some detail around some of the history of the surrounding area
