Cape Byron

New South Wales, Australia

Australia has nearly 200 lighthouses -- iconic relics of a proud maritime past -- and you’re looking at one of the most memorable. In the seaside town of Bryon Bay, a paved road leads up to a bald rocky headland where the Bryon Bay Lighthouse stands, at the most easterly point of the Australian mainland. Savor the extraordinary 360-degree view: the Pacific Ocean, where whales put on a show come June; nearby beaches famed for surfing; and a general sense of harmony, interconnectedness and solitary strength that come from lighthouses like this.
