“Beautiful lookout”

Tacking Point Lighthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 29, 2014

The lighthouse is easy to get to and has a free parking lot. It's a small lighthouse, and you can't go inside (it looks to be still functioning). The view is nice, as is the drive to get there.

Even thoug small, the lighthouse is beautiful, historic and the walk around it offers some stunning views on the shoreline. The coastal walk extends from the city centre all the way to the light house, past a great rarinforest: so if you're into walking (about 3kms), you should really try this one. Otherwise it's an easy scenic drive.

LHB !! Great spot to pull up and have lunch, Council have recently improved the racks and stairs to the beach from here, so t is great for the coastal walk. The lighthouse itself is locked so really you go here for the view of the ocean.
