Worth the drive to see this magnificent structure and outbuildings. Appreciate the harshness of the lifestyle....but keep one hand on the hat on your head due to the extreme winds.

This place is amazing!! You do need to be prepared for a drive on approximately 25 kilometres of dirt road and you need to drive carefully. It is soooooo worth it though. The lighthouse is perched on the edge of a peninsula and the views...More

The drive out to Green Cape is interesting, and for the most part on unsealed road. It is well worth the drive though. The plaques along the path give an insight into the history of the lighthouse. Absolutely amazing views from the lookout just past...More

I am not sure whether you might see the lighthouse from the ship but you definitely won't be able to walk there. You need to drive south of Eden and then travel on a rough dirt road for around 40 Kim's to access the... More
