This 98 hectare reserve has a walking track through
lush dense rainforest to King's Beach, a popular secluded fishing
spot. You'll find it 4km south of Byron Bay and from the walking
trails you'll get some magnificent views of the coastline.
Byron Bay Lighthouse
Byron Bay Lighthouse
The main landmark of the town is the Byron Bay lighthouse,
located only 300 metres fromf Australia's easternmost point, Cape
Byron. The lighthouse was built in 1901 and measures 22 metres
in height and is the starting point for the Cape Byron Headland
Reserve Walking Track. The lighthouse is one of the most powerful
on the NSW coast with a range of 42 km.
From this lighthouse you can walk a 3 km trail around the cape
which will reward you with great views and a chance to see some
wildlife. If you happen to be here between June and November you
may see the whales migrating along the coast here.
The Byron Bay markets are held every first Sunday
of the month at Butler Street Reserve and here you will find lots
of produce, arts and crafts from the surrounding area.
Cape Byron Headland Reserve
Managed by the Cape Byron Trust as part of the National Parks
and Wildlife Service Estate, Cape Byron Headland Reserve includes
the lighthouse (see below) as well as a number of excellent walking
The delightful Cape Byron Headland Reserve and Walking Track
which heads both north and south from the lighthouse. The northerly
walking track winds around the cliffs to the most easterly point
before dropping down to Little Wategos and Wategos Beach and the
southerly track heads down the ridge towards Captain Cook's Lookout.
Both offer exceptional views of the Pacific Ocean and therefore,
in May and from August through to October, they are ideal for
spotting the humpback whales which migrate up and down the coast.
