“We love thinking about the unusual people who lived here in the past – not least Ben Boyd and his failed attempt to build an empire.”
Follow this gentle walking track and boardwalk around the imposing Boyds Tower. Find out about the eccentric entrepreneur Benjamin Boyd, who built Boyds Tower only to never see it commissioned as a lighthouse.
Take a good look at the historic tower to see a missing section displaced by lightning. You can also see Boyd’s name inscribed at the crest.
Nearby, you can visit two lookouts to see superb views – one over the Pacific Ocean and the other over Twofold Bay. If you’re there during whale watching season (June - November) you will probably see whales performing their ocean acrobatics in Twofold Bay. Bring a picnic along to enjoy at the informal picnic area.
