Awesome views of the Tasman Sea and beyond
The Norah Head Lighthouse has been a beacon of light, literally, for more than a century now.


A visit to The Entrance in the Central Coast should include the Norah Head Lighthouse in the itinerary. It is a smooth 15-minute drive north across The Entrance Bridge past Wyrrabalong National Park. The Norah Head Lighthouse has ample parking area, from where it is a short walk to the lighthouse premises.

The view from the Norah Head Lighthouse grounds is stunning.


Built in 1903 to mitigate the perils of sea travel between Sydney and New Castle, the lighthouse has guided many ships avoid the dangers brought by thick fog, fierce gales, jagged rocks and black-out conditions along the coast. Today, the lighthouse is still operational with a 1000 Watt tungsten halogen white light which can be seen 40 kilometres out to sea.

The rock platform at the beach below is a good reason to take a stroll.


While the 28-metre lighthouse itself is a majestic piece of architecture, vantage points around its grounds provide breath-taking panoramic views of the Tasman Sea. From the lighthouse, you can take a stroll down to the beach, where a rock platform covers a huge area.
