Ever dreamed of living in a lighthouse? Now you can get a taste of it with a holiday in the award-winning Assistant Lighthouse Keepers' Cottages in Cape Byron Conservation Area. With Byron Bay just a short drive away, or a half hour walk, it’s a perfect place for a coastal getaway with family or friends.
Lots of accommodation in Byron Bay boasts spectacular views and these cottages are no exception, featuring an almost panoramic view that takes in golden beaches, dramatic coastline and the iconic lighthouse. Although popular with visitors during the day, when the sun goes down, you’ll have the area all to yourself. Sunrise over the ocean is a spectacular sight and well worth waking up for, at least once on your holiday.
The cottages have been lovingly restored to retain their heritage charm, with the addition of modern conveniences to ensure you holiday in style. After a day of swimming, walking and exploring cook up a feast and toast the lighthouse keepers of days gone by.
Take in spectacular views over Byron Bay while you sip a coffee or enjoy a light meal at Cape Byron Lighthouse Cafe. It’s the perfect spot to relax after exploring the Cape Byron Lighthouse area.
Cape Byron Lighthouse sits on Australia’s most easterly point, a shining light over Byron Bay. Take a guided tour, find out about shipwrecks and enjoy spectacular views.
Cape Byron Information Centre is the place to find visitor information for Cape Byron State Conservation Area, Cape Byron Marine Park and surrounding national parks in the Byron Bay area.
Enjoy spectacular coastal views along the Cape Byron walking track that takes you on a hike through rainforest, beach, grassland and clifftops to the lighthouse.

NSW National Parks first recorded The Pass midden in Cape Byron State Conservation Area in 1980. And, in 2013, ancient archaeological midden material was repatriated and displayed on Country. Today, along with our Aboriginal community partners, NPWS works to protect The Pass midden, both now and into the future.
