The views are great and the Cape Byron Lighthouse is the most eastern point of Australia. There is a car fee of $8 to go to the top and a cafe there.

Great location for the views across both sides of the headlands ... good look out facilities too. Parking is an issue though.

The Byron lighthouse is beautiful! The walk is very tough and challenging but worth the beautiful views at the top! It is possible to drive up, which is what I prefer doing! It is a great place to see whales and dolphins! Incredible views! There is a coffee shop at the top.

Its a place for enjoying the beach, sights and people are relaxed. If you are more adventurous, you can use the trail either going up to the light... More
