It was an interesting short walk through bush, over grassland and rocks. 10-15 min walk from car park. The light house was the shorted light house I’d even seen. Small house with viewing platform/lighthouse on roof. The view and walk were good.

gorgeous spot with a relatively easy walking track - some steps with no handrails. The actual lighthouse is so bad!! Very disappointing as just a pole with a light which gave us a good giggle but very good views from there and fun to explore around the little island

We walked from the other end of Penguin Head Rd, along the road there and back along the beach. All up it was about a two hour walk, roughly 10km.

The lighthouse isn’t much to look at but the views up there and aLong the way are lovely.

Most of the walk is flat apart from the last bit from where the road ends. Not too many stairs but some of them are a bit steep and if you’re unsteady on your feet, make sure you’ve got a walking stick or a companion

This a great walk. It is short and scenic with great points to stop and look at the waves or spot dolphins.
Dogs are welcome on a leash. There are also picnic tables by the car park with great views.
Worth a visit particularly if you are new to the area.

My partner and I took our 10 month old out to the headland. I had never been there before but my partner use to live in the area and suggested rather than walking to the lighthouse, going around on the rocks of the headland.
Well if you choose to do this definitely be mindful of your child's age, weather conditions, tide, appropriate shoes, and risk factors of the rocks. As climbing across the rocks on the east side can be done but not with a child.
