Cape Byron State Conservation Area

Natural Attractions

Cape Byron State Conservation Area is great for school excursions and is home to Cape Byron lighthouse, heritage accommodation, walking tracks, scenic lookouts and the Cape Café.

For over a century, the elegant Cape Byron Lighthouse has graced Australia’s most easterly point. Its powerful lamp still burns brightly across the bay and you can visit this historic landmark or even stay in one of the charming keepers’ cottages. If you’d prefer to be closer to the beach, there’s a choice of award-winning eco-tourism beach cottages within the park.

Cape Byron is a brilliant location for whale watching and the walking track provides spine-tingling views of the surrounding coast and ocean. You can enjoy a bite to eat at the Cape Café, with panoramic views across the hinterland to Byron Bay.

Spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach – try The Pass, Wategos or Tallows. If you’re feeling more adventurous, there’s great diving, snorkelling, surfing, hang gliding and kayaking – go on your own or with licensed tour operators.
