Smoky Cape Lighthouse

Reach the Top


Perched high on a headland in the beautiful Hat Head National Park, Smoky Cape Lighthouse is the most elevated lighthouse in NSW, offering spectacular views across the Pacific Ocean.

Completely surrounded by natural bush land and gleaming blue ocean, it’s a must see. The lighthouse itself is as gorgeous as the views, with its dramatic winding staircase and white, octagonal tower. Take a picnic, or just spend some time exploring the area and spotting whales from this perfect vantage point. The lighthouse is still fully operational, guiding ships to safety around the infamous Smoky Cape.
