A lot of the reviews for this lighthouse seem to indicate people didn't bother paying for the tour. They missed out!
We booked our 'Above and Below' tour which also included the Ngilgi Cave - and loved it. If you don't do the tour - I can see how you might be unimpressed. It is after all - just a stone structure on some pretty rugged coastline. The point of interest comes from the information you get from your tour.
Our tour guide was an absolute wealth of information, with historical and technical tidbits aplenty about life back in non-digital times, ship wrecks, survivors and a few ghost stories to boot. I'll happily admit to being a geek - and have been on plenty of lighthouse tours. This was the first one that told me that all Lighthouse signals are unique, for example - and that the fresnel lens is designed to emit a specific sequence that any sea faring vessel can interpret in the dark. If you've a curious mind, there's heaps here to keep you sated and you also get to go up into the lighthouse and see close up how it all works.
I would highly recommend the Above and Below tour - Ngilgi cave was also amazing.
