Welcome to Cape Byron Headland Reserve

  The Cape Byron lighthoude stands 22 metres high, perched 94 metres above sea level on the crest of a windswept headland. The lighthouse was built in 1901 (from pre-cast concrete blocks) to reduce shipping hazards along a dangerous stretch of the coast.

Feel like getting away from it all and finding some natural settings? Go to cape Byron, direction Main Beach, follow the beach to the right just after Watego's beach to see the surfers in action.

The observation point of Wategos Beach, behind this islet, where! can notice, in the roll of the waves, the surfers awaiting their waves. After having admired their amazing prowess, l start to cross National Park, with its relatively surprising plant life, that enchants and refreshes. At the end of this path l take a right towards the cliffs and there, where l discovers an unexpected view of waves of an incredible force and violence crashing against the rocks, realizing it's definitely not the Mediterranean Sea here.

beautiful beaches.
