South Solitary Island can only be accessed by helicopter. These 1hr and 2hr guided walking tours offer a rare opportunity to explore the lifestyle of a remote lighthouse keeper. You'll inspect their living quarters and imagine life on this isolated outpost. 

Be one of the lucky few visitors to ascend the ancient spiral staircase of the lighthouse. You'll be thrilled to step out onto the narrow balcony, suspended some 50m above the raging ocean below.
