If you’re a hiker or backpacker exploring the southern reaches of Beowa National Park, rest your head and enjoy a hot shower after tackling the iconic Light to Light walk. This simple bunkhouse offers no-frills, fully self-contained accommodation in a converted 19th century telegraph station—which was last used to send a telegram in 2007 for the 125th anniversary of Green Cape Lightstation.

It’s also an ideal place to stay for friends and families who want to experience the unique beauty and history of Green Cape on a budget. The bunkhouse overlooks the ocean and is a stone’s throw from Green Cape Lightstation cottages and Green Cape Lighthouse.

Wake up to a spectacular sunrise over the Tasman Sea and Disaster Bay before strapping on your boots and kicking on along the coast the next day.
