Great way to check out Byron, a bit hard with the kids, sometimes had to carry them, sometimes they ran a head. They had a nap after so winning I guess!

Beautiful walk, we saw whales breaching along the way. Lots of stairs so make sure you're somewhat fit!

This is a stunning walk, with great beaches along the way. The trail up to the lighthouse is intense, but it is worth the walk. I would highly recommend, take plenty of water and wear comfortable shoes!

You just have to do it. We saw dolphins, sharks and whales. Allow yourself enough time as you never know what you will see. The view is amazing and you may see some flying humans as well. A must do while in town

Stunning walk with great views. I walked it twice during my 4 day visit and wish I was back there. Amazing views and a good workout with the bonus of seeing whales when in season. a great place to watch the sunset over the bay.

Go slow, leave your car behind for this 45min (one way) walk. It will cost some effort but at the end you will appreciate more the destination.. Positive points: - you can do a loop walk - more beautifull on sunset

Awesome walk worth picturesque views. Try to do early as if it is humid it can get quiet hot. Could be challenging if unfit and signage can be tricky !

You could walk down to the main beach where the Hotel is head to the car park and you will also see the sunset that wouldn’t be anymore than a 15min walk.
