Nice place to visit and spend quiet time during afternoon/sunset. You can see the blue ocean view, natural heart-touching beauty

The outlook from the Lighthouse is stunning and it offers an opportunity to survey the coastline and, if lucky, the occasional whale. The lighthouse can be accessed through the coastal nature walk or by car. A must see

This lighthouse is easy to get to and well worth the time. They've carved out a couple of great lookouts and the views are endless. A few whale watchers were set up when we were there and we could see spouts in the distance. Fun...More

A brilliant spot for unhindered ocean views and spotting whales. We visited last week and enjoyed the views of an awe inspiring coastline and plenty of whales in the distance (and not so distant). A number of vantage points are available for use, and the...More

A brilliant spot for unhindered ocean views and spotting whales. We visited on a windy day and watched an awe inspiring coastline and whales in the distance. Parking was a problem and there were just too many of us tourists for the car spaces available.

This is a spectacular part of the coastline for walking and photography. The parking is limited so the best bet is to park near Lighthouse Beach and walk up to the lighthouse. If time allows you can walk over the northern sid to get a...More

The lighthouse is just a short drive from Port Macquarie and has lovely views down the coast. There's not much to see in the lighthouse itself but it is a great spot to look for whales as you can see for miles. We lucky that...More

We visited on a windy July day, but were pleased we went. The views are lovely, though the lighthouse itself is rather unexciting. There were people with impressive-looking cameras waiting patiently to see whales (none in sight while we were there). There was a large...More

Over the past many years of travelling and staying at Port Macquarie, this was the first time that we took the time to visit the lighthouse. Very historical place. Interesting to see the layout (plan) of the lighthouse keeper's home. Saw dolphins while there.
