Upgrades to Light to Light Walk

Upgrades to Light to Light walking track are underway and should be completed by mid 2024. Check for current and upcoming closures here. The date has been impacted by ongoing wet weather and additional track improvements. Find out more about the investment being made to upgrade Light to Light Walk in Beowa National Park.

Green Cape area is the southern section of Beowa National Park, located south of Eden. It’s your gateway to the Light to Light walk, camping, lighthouse accommodation and superb whale watching.

The Green Cape area stretches from Boyds Tower, at the southern headland of Twofold Bay, to Disaster Bay at the southernmost tip of the park. And so does the 32km Light to Light walk which traces the park’s spectacular rocky coastline. It’s one of the best coastal walks in NSW.

Camp close to secluded beaches and bays at Saltwater Creek and Bittangabee campgrounds. You won’t be camping alone—the bush is alive with wildlife so you might be sharing with wombats, kangaroos, wallabies and superb lyrebirds. If you’re after a little bit of luxury, stay in a heritage lighthouse cottage at Green Cape and wake up to the waves.

The coast around Eden is one of Australia’s best whale watching destinations. To watch the action from land, you’ll get a good view from Boyds Lookout and Disaster Bay lookout. Drop in to Davidson Whaling Station Historic Site if you’re interested in the area's shore-based whaling history.

If you’re short on time, day trippers can still find plenty to do. Walk a small section of the Light to Light walk or stop at Boyds Tower for views of the ocean and the heavily folded red rock beds at Red Point.
