“At a nice spot”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Cow head lighthouse is a good small lighthouse. It is on the way to a trail which leads to cow head point, which is very scenic.

“Spring time hike”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We never get enough of hiking this trail, it is easy,probably the best maintained trail in the park all done by the town of Cow Head.Some great views over the harbour and incredible views of the lang range mountains and stunning sunsets over the gulf.This trail can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Though most people prefer the shorter, lighthouse walk, but the real experience is to continue along the walk to the headland. The path has been renovated completely with gravel-filled steps at the steep spots and welcome guard rails at the dangerous spots along the cliff edge. Though walking is easy, this trek is not for the faint-hearted. The wind blows fiercely in from the sea, so dress warmly, but be prepared to shed outer layers on the return journey - you will be working. We promise you will be amply rewarded by the views. They are truly magnificent.

“Great walk”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Wonderful views on the way to the lighthouse. We enjoyed the walk through open fields and through the woods. The lighthouse is in a remote wooded area, but the door is unlocked and you can climb to the top. Beautiful day, great walk!
