Information

Although the lighthouse tower is closed to the public you can take a walk up to the site to see the lighthouse and some of the old cottages, you can even check out the unique 1942 light which is on display in the lighthouse office.The Lighthouse Walk is a 3.6km return trip up a steep concrete road that starts at the north eastern point at Welcome Bay. There are many great viewing platforms along the way and the breathtaking views from the top will be well worth the walk.When the ranger is on duty you can enjoy 360 degree views of Fitzroy Island and the stunning Coral Sea. In winter you may even be lucky enough to spot a migrating humpback whale.
