Tackle the spectacular Light to Light walk, which stretches 30km between Green Cape Lightstation and Boyds Tower in Beowa National Park on the far south coast.
Take in stunning and ever changing views and get up close with native animals on this superb south coast walk. You'll see pristine coastal scenery and trace the state’s early light-keeping history.
Spot kangaroos, wallabies, lyrebirds, wombats, possums and kookaburras and watch whales gliding past on their annual winter migrations. You can walk in either direction and enjoy the walk on shorter sections. Or hike the full trail over two days, sleeping in quiet campsites at Saltwater Creek or Bittangabee Bay.
Wherever you walk, make sure you’re well-prepared, with comfortable walking shoes, sun protection, a map and plenty of water. For longer walks, you might also prefer to join a group with a professional guide. This walk is located in the southern section of Beowa National Park and can be started from either end of the 31km trek – Boyds Tower or Green Cape Lightstation.
There are two campgrounds with facilities along the trail: Saltwater Creek and Bittangabee Bay. There is also accommodation at the Green Cape Lightstation Keepers’ Cottage.
- Eden is approximately 6 hours drive south of Sydney. From Melbourne, it’s a 5½ hour drive to Edrom Road, which then takes you to either end of the trek.
