I wanted to go here as we were staying in the area of Jervis Bay. It is a historical site with the lighthouse being built in 1898 although it has now been replaced by a solar powered steel structure. It is amazing to see the lighthouse as well as the lighthouse keepers outbuildings and think how these people lived in... More

We went for a drive to explore the area and came across this spot. To gain access you have to go past security and show Id as you go through a military area. Security guy was fantastic, supplied maps and pointed out what was worth a must see. The light house and buildings have been well looked after, unfortunately you... More

We all know how awful some dogs and dog people can be - particularly those who insist on traveling with their animals. Unfortunately, it's all too common to encounter someone who thinks of the world as their backyard and, sad to say, dog people are the main culprits - statistically, dog owners as a group tend to lack more self-awareness...

We were very lucky to stay on the only weekend of the year that allowed walk through of the lighthouse. Volunteers explained history. Was a great experience even if you aren't into history!

This is worth the trip.....quite a way on dirt road to get to the lighthouse, also a short walk, but definitely worth the effort. You have to give your details at the entrance with name, drivers licence etc, and where you are from, but only takes a minute. When you get to the lighthouse, there are lighthouse keeper cottages as... More

Great exposure, easy to find climbs. So much wildlife, whale watching, seals and penguins swim below. Can get pretty windy! But beautiful location 👍🏻

Once you are there it offers amazing views! From the entrance it is about a15 minute drive. OK drive, as long as you don't get the idiots flying past you at a million miles per hour throwing stones up at your car! The light house is very close to where you park the car. It's with the views. While here... More

Normal cars are ok to be taken however all wheel drives are perfect . Take your thermous of coffee & camera , be prepared to give ID @... More
