Byron Light House – The historic Byron Bay lighthouse is one of the most popular sites in northern New South Wales. Built in 1901, the striking lighthouse sits majestically on the rocky cliff tops of Cape Byron. Jutting out into the ocean, the cape is Australia’s most eastern mainland point and features a number of easily navigable hiking trails along with incredible lookouts for whale and dolphin watching. Photographers looking for great coastal landscape views will not be disappointed when visiting the Cape Byron Light.
Whale Watching – The great annual whale migration takes place every year between June and November, and whether you’re enjoying the incredible whale watching experience on a boat tour or simple enjoy the sights from a popular Byron Bay lookout, the sea life views are equally spectacular. The added benefit of a whale watching excursion is that most tours provide a trained marine biologist or researcher who during the course of the trip provides informative commentary on the giant mammals.
