Then, you can take a 1.5 km walk to Byron Bay Lighthouse via the Cape Byron Walking Track.

The Byron Bay Lighthouse trail is a must-do for any nature lover visiting Byron Bay and Cape Byron Lighthouse. The Lighthouse Byron Bay is positioned at the edge of Cape Byron near Tallow Beach.

Regardless of the very steep steps, soak up the fresh ocean breeze and take in everything the Byron Bay Lighthouse hike has to offer! You will be rewarded with an absolutely amazing view and can meet local wildlife, such as cute wallabies.

The Cape Byron Lighthouse is one of the best Byron Bay attractions to see the most beautiful sunrise and sunset. You can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the coast, Byron Beach, Tallows Beach and the cliffs from the Byron lighthouse.
