Beautifully restored Lighthouse Keepers Quarters dating back to 1903. The Lighthouse Keepers Quarters consist of two recently upgraded 3 bedroom cottages located on the headland with magnificent ocean vistas. On site hosts are at your beck and call. Sleeping up to 8 people in each fully self contained cottage. Norah Head is the perfect escape for a romantic weekend for two or a family week away. With more upgrades in the near future the Lighthouse Trust looks forward to welcoming many more visitors through working lighthouse.

A very historical area with not only the lighthouse, which has accomodation in cottages, but also a memorial to ships sunk in the area. Including ships sunk by the Japenese and by German mines in WW2. Added bonus of seeing whales playing in the ocean.

Norah Head Lighthouse is an interesting experience. A guided tour through the Lighthouse is inexpensive, and the views, both from the tower and the surrounding grounds, are fabulous. For bushwalkers, the lighthouse is on the Coastal Track, and there is an interesting local detour.

An active lighthouse with plenty of history. The views and a walk along the massive rock pools make a worth while stop. The $20 for a family visit to the lighthouse is a little steep however.More
