Standing high on a narrow headland, Smoky Cape Lighthouse is surrounded by the stunning coastal scenery of Hat Head National Park. The lighthouse itself is as beautiful as the views – check out its winding staircase and octagonal tower.

Built in 1891, this heritage lighthouse is one of the last designed by the Colonial Architect, James Barnet. Smoky Cape headland was so named by Captain Cook after he saw Aboriginal fires burning there in 1770.

Guided lighthouse tours are available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 1 pm – contact (02) 6566 6301. You can also stay overnight at the lighthouse keepers’ cottage.
