Beautiful views from the lighthouse and the beach. Short walk to both. Needs to be signposted better though.

Fingal Head is one of those lovely unspoilt spots that is becoming extremely popular with both locals and day trippers from the Gold Coast. The parking is a problem as there are limited spaces and most of them are taken up by customers of the...More

A short walk from the nearby car-park through the scrub takes you to a historical lighthouse up on the headland. Built in Victorian times it filled a vital role in keeping coastal shipping safe. Also of some interest is the headland itself, made of basalt...More

We did this on a weekday, so plenty of parking. Fantastic bush walk, kept cool by the remnant coastal rain forest. Said 500 metres, but seemed quicker, remember the water if hot day, as no facilities when you reach the lighthouse. Also would advise mosquito...More

We have seen a number of lighthouses and this one is not exceptional in any way, but the rock formations on the headland are amazing. Nowhere near as large as Giants Causeway in Ireland, but well worth the short walk out to the headland, and...More

I was lucky enough to visit to Fingal Head lighthouse on a perfect November day. Pleasant if not exactly exciting bush walk of about 10 minutes to reach the lighthouse, and then spectacular views in north to Tweed Heads, east to Cook Island and the...More

The views are well worth the walk up to the lighthouse and across to Cook Island. Beach views south towards Kinscliff and north towards Cooloongatta. Lots of birdlife along the way.

We love this little hideaway. Secluded and protected . Patrolled beach with mikes of sand to get lost on.
