This is a strenuous walk but well worth the effort for the fabulous views. The roadway walk is still really steep but well concreted. The steps are not very uniform & quite narrow in places. Wear sturdy footwear & go well prepared.

It is a lovely walk. Good bit of exercise without being too gruelling. And the view is worth it. Only downside is that it is a National Park, so you can't take your dog. Bit rough if you've driven all the way from the city.

Barrenjoey Lighthouse is situated over a hill that is approximately 30 min walk from the paid car park near the boathouse restaurant, including 10-15min walk along the beach and further 15-20min hike up the hill. There are two ways to the top - a steep...More
