A short walk from Palm Beach are the historic Barrenjoey Lighthouse and keepers’ cottages. Dating back to 1881, the cottages and the lighthouse were made from Hawkesbury sandstone. Climb 91 metres above sea level to reach the site. While an easy one kilometre walk kicks off from the car park, adventurers can alternately hike the challenging 600m Smugglers Track. The track was built in 1850 by smugglers transporting contraband into Broken Bay. One important point on the site is the first Lighthouse keeper’s grave, located just near the top.
Scale the lighthouse for a rewarding 360-degree view of the scenic surroundings which feature the Ku-ring-gai National Park, Pittwater, Broken Bay, Hawkesbury River and the Central Coast. Come during spring to witness migrating whales. On Sundays visitors can also opt for guided tours to the lighthouse.
