With a small child this one’s great as it’s small. Just the right amount of info given by an enthusiastic guide. Well worth a visit.

We opted to do the 2km 'loop track' around the lighthouse. This was a nice flat walk and gave us panoramic views around the cape. We even startled a few kangaroos lazing on the path in the sun. After our walk we headed into the...More

The grounds of this lighthouse are very impressive. There is a deck area where you can have a seat and enjoy a drink or ice cream. The walk to the lighthouse has some detailed information and the lookout is fantastic.

Took our American friends to the lighthouse. No need to join a tour and everything is explained by plaques as you walk around. Very well set up and kept. Delightful cafe and gift shop.

It’s a nice looking Lighthouse, and the grounds are nice, but it has nothing unique about it. The view is ok, but not worth another trip to see. I appreciated the signs warning about snakes.More
