Cape Byron is Australia’s easternmost point of the mainland of Australia. Cape Byron is located about 166 kms South of Brisbane and is located in New South Wales (NSW). The Cape Byron lighthouse was built in 1901 and can be reached by car, cycling or walking. There are many walking tracks from Byron Bay via Wategos beach to the lighthouse. It is one of our favourite coastal walks, trekking through rainforest, picturesque beaches and you can often watch dolphins jumping the waves in Clarkes beach. At the top, you can also overlook the 6.5 km long Tallow beach, a great surf beach but with many rips, so make sure to swim between the flags there.
