It was the young girl who took our money for parking who advised us to take the time to drive up to this lighthouse, it was a lovely walk from the carpark and the views along the way were great. Interestingly on our way back to the car we came across a couple who were taking what the husband considered... More

You get quite decent views on this 600 metres walk, but if you are a hiker grade 3 and above it will be boring for you. This is however great for grade 1&2 hikers. The lighthouse has nothing to visit though.

This track to the lighthouse can be easily missed so make sure you get there. A fabulous, easy boardwalk takes you from the car park up to the lighthouse for amazing views. Don't miss it!

There is a wheelchair accessible walk on a boardwalk but a little uphill. Great views in every direction and looks back to Wineglass Bay. Well worth a look. Not a lot of carpark space.

Short drive from the Visitor centre and worth the trip. Views from the lookout point are awesome and the path is very easy to walk

We were unfortunate and had light showers and fairly big gusts rolling through while visiting. However the scenery was just amazing, the cliffs, flowers, sea... all beautiful. We were even lucky enough to spot 4 seals over on the Nuggets. The boardwalks and walking track around the lighthouse are wheelchair friendly.

Breathtaking views, and wheel-chair accessible too. Nice walk about 10mins in duration but longer because we were taking so many photos.

What fantastic weather we where blessed with today on our trip to the lighthouse. The scenery is excellent and it is very wheelchair friendly. A must see for all people who travel to the Freycinet national park.

This wonderful look at the coastline is very easy to get to, as elluded to by the previous reviewers. We had 4 generations in our party. Grandparents at 80 y/o to our grand niece at 3 y/o. Everyone made it to the lookouts. You can see north to the Friendly Beaches around to the south to Wineglass Bay. (A great... More

So often forgotten by people driving to and from the Freycinets, this lighthouse and more importantly the circuit walk takes in magnificent views towards Wineglass Bay and beyond. We saw seals and dolphins when we were there. It is a gentle (gravel and boardwalk) stroll suitable for a wheelchair and the elderly who may be unable to walk up to... More
