  • Very beautiful place, can spot many wild kangaroos on the way there. Be aware the road leading to the light house is not fully sealed though.
  • It was a lovely drive out to the lighthouse. The lighthouse is as you would expect. Pity the cafe was closed/undergoing renovation. this wasnt mentioned anywhere online, but the lighthouse itself has lots of history and worth a pop in. The view is amazing.
