Morning adventure to Cape Byron Lighthouse
If you're travelling to Bryon Bay (NSW) and are in the mood for a pleasant hike/walk, then make sure to visit the Cape Byron Lighthouse. Arrive early enough and you'll be greeted by a stunning sunrise. Below was a tasting of the view as we were on our way up Lighthouse road.
When we were there access to the car park right where the lighthouse was situated was still closed so we parked and walked up towards the lighthouse. As we arrived the sun was beginning to creep up and it was an absolutely breathtaking sight with pink and orange hues coloring the sky.
We did a short walk around the area, a fair bit of uphill and down hill walking but nothing overly strenuous. As long as you take your time, it's a fairly comfortable walk. We passed lots of joggers/walkers that morning so there are people about, but what was nice was that there were areas that you could walk off to more secluded sections of beaches.

This view below was taken on the way back to the carpark - I would highly recommend coming for sunrise - spectacular views and not too crowded if you get in early (hopefully the weather is great too). Great way to spend a morning taking a scenic stroll around Cape Byron taking in these beautiful sights!
