Watching the whales while I made my way up to the historic lighthouse was an exciting experience. The history within is worth a look.

Good round trip 4 mile hike. Pretty views and easy to get too. Go earlier in the day to avoid crowds

Great feeling being on the Eastern-most tip of Australia. Kinda makes one feel a little humble. Easy road up there and worth the few extra minutes to have a look around.

What a wonder to be able to watch so many whales from the Lighthouse walkways. Add in a Turtle or two and a wonderful day what could be better.

Such a good experience going to the lighthouse. Brilliant views all around and even the chance to see a humpback whale off in the distance.
