Eastern most point in Australia- fabulous views with the occasional whale swimming by. Today there were hang- gliders, happy hikers and dolphins

Visited the lighthouse two days in a row. One to see the sunset and the next morning for sunrise. In mid-October there were lots of whales swimming by. Both times it was very crowded but not so there wasn't somewhere to watch the view. Parking...More

Well worth the walk up to the lighthouse. The view from the top is breathtaking, and the most easterly point in Australia. Could see dolphins and whales breaching the water

Such a good vantage point, stunning views of the ocean and I can’t believe we got to see whales too!

the view is amazing, but parking is limited and there is a charge of $8 which surprised us because other sights have been free

A short walk to Byron Lighthouse for a magnificent view. On top of the lighthouse there are some walking areas close to sea with a fantastic view over the ocean and we spotted whales and dolphins playing in to the waves. Brian

I've wanted to visit the lighthouse for years and it certainly didn't disappoint. The view is breathtaking. To stand above the ocean and watch whales and dolphins was so exciting.

If you are visiting Byron Bay, a trip to the light house is a must. Since we were last here, the local council now charge you $8 to park anywhere near it, so if you are able, I suggest you walk up to visit it....More

Most easterly point on the Australian coast. Spectacular views, photo opportunity and a nice walk up to the headland.

There is limited parking at the top lighthouse for $8 for an hour which is well worth to save you a walk and is cheaper than parking in the cities. And the view from all sides is amazing!
