Lighthouse Road, Byron Bay, New South Wales

The basics

Built in 1901 and still in operation today, the Cape Byron Lighthouse dominates the promontory. Many visitors come to enjoy its maritime museum—or even stay in the heritage-listed Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottages nearby. Others visit via the Cape Byron Walking Track, which runs around 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) around the headland, through terrain from rainforest to grassland. Cape Byron stands 308 feet (94 meters) above the ocean, making it a great location for spotting whales in season, while the sign proclaiming it Australia’s most easterly point is an ever-popular photo opp.

When to get there

Byron Bay is warm all year-round, so there’s no bad time to visit Cape Byron. Whale watchers will want to arrive between May and November, when humpback whales pass through. The area is at its busiest and prices highest during Australia’s long summer vacation in December and January; if possible, the spring season (October and November) may be a better option.
