If you like scenery of rugged landscapes & lighthouses then this is for you! It is a must when you visit the area. Took some awesome picts. Only different thing I would do next time is go there early/mid morning before the wind starts. We visited round 2pm & was very blowy

My husband and I were not so sure and nearly turned around as the dirt road up to the lighthouse is a little bumpy. But as we stopped at disaster bay lookout it was worth it for the views , another 10 mins down the road is the lighthouse with more spectacular views. You can pay $10 to tour the lighthouse but we were happy just with the scenery .

Went here on the Whale festival weekend at Eden
Its bit of a rumbly gravel road to get there but a normal two wheel drive will get you there-unless you get taken out by 4WD test pilots.
But the view and the lighthouse tour is worth it, with the bonus of Whales in quite close when we were there.

The lighthouse is a fully functional but decommissioned lighthouse at the end of a 20km drive over dirt roads. For a small fee there are regular tours at 3pm on Mon-Thurs. The tours start at the bottom of the tower than make their way up to the top, with stops at each floor within the tower, to learn more about how old lighthouses were operated by the lighthouse keepers. At the top you get a chance to step out and walk around the tower. The views are spectacular, the tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable and the whole experience entertaining and informative.

We are always happy to hear from visitors who love Green Cape as much as we do! Guided tours of the lighthouse take place at 3pm, Thursday to Monday and are a fabulous opportunity to learn more about the rich and varied history of this stretch of wild coastline. Thank you for the great feedback!

We did a trip to the lighthouse on a day when it wasn't open for tours. That didn't stop us and we weren't disappointed as the view from the end of the walk was spectacular. Those of us at the front of the group saw whales breaching which was a bonus. We watched the rain coming up the coast and mad a dash for the car but the trip was worth it to see the view. The road is mostly dirt but it is a good road.

Hi Barb

You are right - it truly is a spectacular location out at Green Cape and well worth the drive. Plenty of whales and blustery conditions over the past few days. Thanks for visiting, we hope to see you again.
