This is a working fully automated lighthouse not open to the public. The lighthouse itself is not very exciting however the boardwalk coming in and the views are exceptional. You are very high and close to sheer drops. A great place for whale watching. Keep...More

We only went here because the weather was miserable and we couldn’t do the 3 hour hike we originally had planned. The lighthouse itself was a major letdown. There were some okay views of of the ocean but that was about it.

Flat, very easy walking around the Cape. Beautiful views across the back of the Freycinet Peninsula. Lots of wildlife (wallabies, birds etc) and good information about the area.

This is a scenic and very easy walk. It can be done in as little as 20 minutes. If you are there on a blustery spring day make sure to take a warm jacket with you. Happened to see a wallaby in the car park...More

First of all, the lighthouse isn't the attraction here. It is fully automated and there is no access inside. However, the views from the boardwalk around the lighthouse are on-par with the views from the Wineglass Bay Lookout. I'd recommend this place as part of...More

A short walk from the carpark and I was able to experience such a nice view! There, I was able to see mountains and the big patch of blue seas. Great place to take pictures with friends or family! Would recommend this place if you...More
