Our Light to Light walk makes the press!
Titled: “Wild luxury: walking tours that’ll change how you see Australia” the story praised our guided tour.
“Down in southern NSW, the Light to Light is one of the state’s best kept secrets. Weaving from the Lighthouse at Boyds Tower to the charming 1883 Lighthouse at Green Cape, the four day tour from Life’s an Adventure is your ticket to uncover it, ” writes Chris Ashton.
“When you’re not marvelling at the kaleidoscope of colours unfolding with each step, you’ll witness seabirds and seals, historic ruins and rugged coastlines, all topped off with à la carte dining and wines at the Seahorse Hotel.”
“A wildlife cruise showcasing the region from a different perspective – migrating whales can be spotted from September to November – is an added bonus of this pack-free tour.”
One of our favourite days on the walk is day 2: Boyds Tower – Saltwater Creek Track (13km/4.5hr).
Boyd’s Tower was constructed in the late 1840s as part of an ambitious plan by Benjamin Boyd to establish Eden as a major commercial port. He was however denied official approval to use the tower as a lighthouse and the main use for this tower came from shore-based whales of the coastline.
We pass open grassy areas such as between Mowarry Point and Leather Jacket Bay, you may see eastern grey kangaroos grazing. Between the gently curving rocky landscapes of Leatherjacket Bay and Mowarry Point, we hike through coastal forests and heath and across red-rocked platforms. Marvel how Mowarry point has a direct line of sight to both Boyds Tower and Green Cape.
We follow the trail and look out for seals and seabirds year-round, or migrating whales in season, particularly between September and November. Finally, we head to the pristine Saltwater Creek Beach to cool down with a swim or surf.
