Visit on a good weather day .Easy walk from the car park .Nice views at the lighthouse but there are other lighthouses in tas so not worth making it a special visit

This is a must do if in the area and you're paying the $24 park entry. We did it on the way back after the Wineglass Bay trek and so glad we did. Better views and easy 10 min walk on an easy well maintained path. Stunning views.

Very easy and short walk with great views! Can just see the seals through binoculars but you can definitely hear them! Perfect spot to watch the sunrise if you're keen, just drive carefully as there can be lots of wildlife on the roads at that time.

It was raining and got nothing to do, drive to this lighthouse and have a walk, very windy on the day we went but the view still worth it.

It was the young girl who took our money for parking who advised us to take the time to drive up to this lighthouse, it was a lovely walk from the carpark and the views along the way were great. Interestingly on our way back to the car we came across a couple who were taking what the husband considered... More

You get quite decent views on this 600 metres walk, but if you are a hiker grade 3 and above it will be boring for you. This is however great for grade 1&2 hikers. The lighthouse has nothing to visit though.

This track to the lighthouse can be easily missed so make sure you get there. A fabulous, easy boardwalk takes you from the car park up to the lighthouse for amazing views. Don't miss it!

There is a wheelchair accessible walk on a boardwalk but a little uphill. Great views in every direction and looks back to Wineglass Bay. Well worth a look. Not a lot of carpark space.

Short drive from the Visitor centre and worth the trip. Views from the lookout point are awesome and the path is very easy to walk

We were unfortunate and had light showers and fairly big gusts rolling through while visiting. However the scenery was just amazing, the cliffs, flowers, sea... all beautiful. We were even lucky enough to spot 4 seals over on the Nuggets. The boardwalks and walking track around the lighthouse are wheelchair friendly.
