  • On the island you will be taken on a fully guided 2 hour interpretive tour by NPWS Rangers.
  • The tour will include inspecting some rooms of the Head lighthouse keepers quarters, an opportunity to hear some stories of life on the island before it was automated in 1975 and a walk down to the old gantry.
  • You will have the good fortune to inspect the Lighthouse and ascend the spiral staircase to view the magical panorama from the Light Tower balcony and Rangers will enlighten you with fascinating facts of the Lighthouse.
  • On the island will be a person who had lived on the island when the Lighthouse was not automated - listen to amazing stories of life hardships. * subject to availability
  • An opportunity for a more relaxed pace of experience on the island, where participants can more readily absorb the unique environmental ambience of the island and follow their imagination as it wanders back through time to ponder the colourful times gone by of generations of lighthouse keepers and their families.  Time also to engage in casual conversation under the eaves of the restored keepers cottage with Rangers, all the while spotting for the blow of humpback whales on their migration to more northern breeding grounds. 
  • Groups will stay on formed concrete paths, children must be supervised at all times.
  • Return to Coffs Harbour Airport after the tour.
