For over a century, this elegant lighthouse has stood tall at Australia’s most easterly point. You can take a guided tour of the magnificent landmark, go for a walk along the track, which provides the kind of views of the surrounding coast and ocean that give you goosebumps, or sit and partake in whale-watching. Please be respectful though. Aboriginal culture is alive and well at Cape Byron, and the Cape is very special to the Bundjalung of Byron Bay (Arakwal) Aboriginal people.
