Definitely worth visiting. You can do the early morning hike and catch the sunrise or do the afternoon walk and catch the sunset (depending on your preference). It's definitely worth the gorgeous views up top.

Lovely place this lighthouse. Actually my favourite in Australia so far. There is also a tiny museum which you can visit for free. You will also get an amazing view from up there.

The sunrise is beautiful and a must! Just inland from the "most eastern point of Australia" you can get a good glimpse some whales. It's a good hike from Byron, but parking can be expensive and crowded.

The view from this lighthouse is amazing. We could see the whales passing in the distance and other aquatic life nearby.

It is the most easterly point on the Australian continent and it is gorgeous. Do not miss this spot if you are near enough.

Man does it take one hell of a lot of steps to get up to this beast of a lighthouse (actually not that big.) but no finer place to watch the sun set. Also a side not no finer hill to fly down on a skateboard. It terrified me and I nearly died on a couple of corners but man was it fun!

The Cape Byron Lighthouse is Australia's most easterly light being situated on the most easterly point of the mainland. It is also Australia's most powerful Lighthouse.

One of the most magical places to watch the first sunrise in Australia. It's something you don't want to miss seeing!

Located on the eastern most point of the continent which according to Aboriginal mythology is the birthplace of humanity. Next to Uluru the Cape of Bryon is one of the most sacred places in Australia.

The Lighthouse itself is one of the few sites to see in Byron. It's great to be out there on the cape!
