The basics

Most Byron Bay tours include a visit to the Cape Byron Lighthouse. Climb the tower to admire views over Byron Bay, Cape Byron, and Julian Rocks; join a guided tour to hear stories of the historic lighthouse and famous shipwrecks; then visit the Maritime Museum in the Lighthouse Keeper’s office. Keep a lookout for dolphins and humpback whales—the cape is a popular place to spot whales during their annual migration and the lighthouse offers some of the best views. Boat cruise and sea kayaking excursions around the cape provide views of the lighthouse from the water.

When to get there

The Lighthouse and the Maritime Museum are usually open daily throughout the year.

Humpback whales can be spotted along the coast between June and November.

The Cape Byron Walking Track

The most scenic way to reach the Cape Byron Lighthouse is by hiking the Cape Byron Walking Track, which loops around the coast. Follow the 2.3-mile (3.7-kilometer) grade 3 walk along coastal cliffs, beachside promenades, grassy trails, and rainforest boardwalks, taking in the natural wonders of the Cape Byron State Conservation Area.
