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 tracks.

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.
