Byron Bay Lighthouse Walk

What you can expect

This popular northern NSW getaway hotspot is renowned for many things, but there are few more distinctive than its iconic lighthouse which sits perched atop sea cliffs on the easternmost point of mainland Australia. The lighthouse walk - which can be done either from the base of the hill (strenuous) or via a drive-then-walk combination (for the lazier among us) - grants wonderful views of the open ocean crashing against the rocks below, and hang gliders can often be spotted circling the skies above. Spanning a leisurely 3.7km loop, it's doable for all ages and easily Byron's must-do activity for first time visitors.
