We had the point all to ourselves ... this a great place to go at sunset. Don't expect museums and interpretive panels here - it's just you, the birds, the lighthouse, and the sea.

Lighthouse keeper "Russell" invited us to come in to the property when he was returning from his morning walk on the road in. He gave us an excellent tour and explanation of the property. Seals were viewed in the waters below for quite some time.
