This was a little side step on our way back from The Wreck Walk. There are prettier lighthouses but while we were in the area we thought we’d check it out. To access the lighthouse you do need to drive through a manned checkpoint as...More

The lighthouse and buildings are historically interesting. Great views of Jervis Bay and along the coast. Drive in from Currarong and it is only a short walk from the car park. The track can be muddy if it has been raining. Don't get too close...More

Was cool to come out and check it out. Saw some rock climbers there too. Absolutely crazy! Fenced so no need to stress if you have little ones with you.

It is a lovely drive and relatively short walk to reach Point Perpendicular Lighthouse on the Naval Base. You must show proper identification to enter the base. The views are spectacular and depending on the season you may sea whales or other sea creatures.

The road into the lighthouse is corrugated badly and will rattle tour teeth badly,. You do not need a four wheel drive but if you drive slowly or to the speed limit you will have a most unpleasant journey. Drive at over 80 and you...More

We were interested to see the lighthouse, which is well maintained and nice to look at. The location on clifftops means there are safety fences all around so quite difficult to see much of the view. It's an 11km drive along a gravel road.

It's a fair drive & I wouldn't want to do it without a4x4 as it's corrugated for the drive into park. The view is spectacular once there & if you are brave enough (naughty enough) you can creep right to the edge & peer over....More

When we went there, we found nothing interesting. It was just view of ocean which we can have anywhere in the world. People say this place is good for whale watching but sadly we didn't see anything like that. There was nothing fascinating about the...More
