Description

Cape Byron is on the must-see list for everyone who visits Byron Bay. The Cape Byron lighthouse sits on an ancient headland that was called Walgun by the Arakwal people who lived around the cape for thousands of years before, Captain Cook sailed past in 1770 and named Cape Byron. 

Wendy will take you on a live-streamed, guided tour starting at the view of Tallows Beach, walk around the headland to the lighthouse (we won't be able to go inside as it's closed), but you will see stunning views of Byron Bay and the ancient volcano which erupted nearby 20 million years ago. Wendy will talk about the shipwrecks and the big storms that caused them. She will follow the headland along to the most easterly point on Australia mainland, all the time looking for whales, dolphins, rays, turtles, birds, and wallabies. 

Wendy will then descend down the hill through the littoral rainforest, still looking for wildlife and pointing out the significant flora. She will eventually arrive at Wategoes beach which often displays the egalitarian examples of Australia’s society, with the million houses, campervans, and surfers.
