Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I walked from the camp to the lighthouse (along with many others). Although part of the track is under reconstruction, it is still a great walk. Views are fabulous. We weren’t lucky enough to see any whales but others did.

    Located just off the beach at The Pass .. the Fisherman’s Lookout has good views along Byron Bay’s foreshore

    As well as the surrounding views from Fisherman’s Lookout .. I liked the rock formations

    If you visited this Byron Bay lookout during higher tides .. you’ll need to walk through water

    If visiting Byron Bay .. I recommend a stroll & climb around the hidden gem of - The Pass

    The Pass .. is within the impressive nature reserve of Cape Byron State Conservation Area

    Within The Pass .. you have the
    * Fisherman's Lookout
    * Nature & Views
    * Palm Valley & Palm Valley Loop Walking Track .. which is a short nature walk with different Australian palms
    * Barbecue & Picnic Areas
    * The Pass Cafe
    * Clarkes Beach
    * Cape Byron Walking Track
    * Car parking - metered

    I visited the beautiful The Pass & other scenic locations around Cape Byron Conservation Area .. a few times in 2022

    For the picturesque views of lower Cape Byron Conversation Area Headlands .. enduring the energetic hillside walk , to this Cape Byron Lookout - making it worth while

    I liked the rock formations & Little Wategos Beach

    The sealed hillside track is surely not PWD friendly .. due to the amount of steps

    Don’t bother with this lookout. Any views that it once had have been totally overgrown.
    There is a decent sized carpark here and a path that leads straight down to the beach so it’s a handy spot but don’t expect a panoramic view.
    There is a changing room/toilet block to the right of the beach path, some outdoor gym equipment, and a picnic area with one or two wooden tables.
    However the picnic area is also overgrown and quite dark and gloomy so I wouldn’t suggest it to anyone. There are so many beautiful picnic spots all over Byron that you can do much, much better elsewhere. This one is past its use-by date.
    Although the lookout views are completely obscured by native bushland, just past it is an elevated boardwalk that does have some lovely vantage points.
    We were walking from Main Beach to Wategos so we kept walking and after just a couple of minutes we had some really vantage points, looking down over Clarkes and Main Beaches.
