Experience one of the most breathtaking views in Sydney from Barrenjoey Lighthouse at the northern end of Palm Beach. It's well worth the walk up Barrenjoey Head to get there.
The lighthouse was built in 1881, from sandstone on the site. It's been beautifully restored, and now welcomes visitors from around the world each Sunday. Hear about its history, climb the winding stairs and imagine yourself as the 19th-century lighthouse keeper there.
It's a good idea to wear sturdy shoes, and bring weather protection and drinking water with you. Pack your camera too – you'll want to revisit these beautiful views again and again.
