After taking advantage of the surfing in Byron and its surrounding beaches for a few days, it was time for me to go check out this lighthouse which has been taunting me since my arrival. On this day, I get up early. The sky is blue, the sun shines hard, this is going to be a good day. I begin to walk, in the assault of this hill at the top of which it is held.
On the road, I stop one first time. The view is impregnable on the bay. To the foreground I can see The Pass, then, in the background, this is Byron Beach. They are teasing me.

I continue to climb this hill. I am almost there when to my right appears Tallow Beach! Wow! It looks like that from distance! These last few days, I got used to diving into its water to surf. I was concerned by the landscape obviously, but much more by the surfing. With a step back, I now realize its real beauty! And, it extends until Broken Head, another beach where I’m used to going.
Tallow Beach and Broken Head
I’m taking the beauty of the landscape but I’m only halfway arrived. While I resume my walk, I raise my head and what do I see? Byron’s lighthouse. Majestic, it thrones at the top of this hill. As if it ruled the roost in the bay.

It intrigues me. I go around, I observe it from all angles. Then my attention is carried somewhere else. I look towards the horizon. I see some whales and dolphins. They are making their aquatic round.

After putting my walk in brackets for a few minutes to observe the fauna, I resume venturing up to the most easterly point of Australia. It is the end of the rocks on the photo below.

It’s time for me to return now, but not before the last stop: Wategos Beach. Protected from the mass of people in Byron, this beach is a real haven of peace in which you may relax before returning in town.
Here it is for my walk to Cape Byron. When you will have the opportunity to go there, I hope that you will have a good time 🙂
