Light to Light Walk, Sapphire Coast NSW

Light to Light walk

A guided Pack Free 3 day walk

One of New South Wales best-kept secrets is the amazing Light to Light Walk situated on the Sapphire Coast near Eden in New South Wales.

This scenic guided Pack Free 30km walk winds its way from the historic Lighthouse at Boyds Tower to the charming 1883 Lighthouse at Green Cape. This dramatic landscape is a kaleidoscope of contrasts from the striking 320 million years old red rocky outcrops to coastal forests.

Far from clinging to the coast, the walk meanders across the invisible boundaries that separate one set of plant habitats from another. As if stepping through a door, heathland gives away to tall open forests. Thick groves of tea tree or paperbark trees emerge into open coastal banksia woodlands or imposing forests of Woolly Butt.

A walking tour with all the creature comforts

Pack Free Walk
Our Pack Free walk has been designed so you can avoid carrying your clothes and gear in a heavy pack. Walk each day with as little as your camera and water and spend your time enjoy the delights of this wonderful area.

2 nights at the luxurious Seahorse Boutique hotel
After a day’s hiking experience, there’s nothing better than returning to wonderful accommodation where you can rest and recharge your batteries. Our accommodation for two night is the luxurious Seahorse boutique hotel located on the shores of pretty Twofold Bay commanding stunning views to Eden.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Boyds Tower – Saltwater Creek Track
Light to Light Walk, Sapphire Coast NSW

PRE TOUR DAY: Flights are available with Rex Airlines from Sydney or Melbourne to Merimbula. These will need to be booked independently. Please fly in the evening before the tour starts. Pre-tour accommodation and transfers can be arranged at the Seahorse Inn. Please select this option when booking if required.

Meet your guide in the foyer of the Seahorse Inn at 8.00am for transfer to the start of our walk. We begin our coastal trek at the northern end overlooking Twofold Bay from Boyds Tower and admire this historic sandstone building originally intended to be a lighthouse. 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. See if you can pick out other headlands along the way from where you might be able to see a lighthouse. 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. Afterwards, we return to the Seahorse Inn Hotel. After our walk, we transfer to the charming waterfront Seahorse Inn Hotel for our next 2 nights accommodation. Tonight enjoy dinner in the restaurant featuring fine dining served with wine.

Day 2: Saltwater Creek – Bittangabee Bay - Cruise
Light to Light Walk, Sapphire Coast NSW

After breakfast at the hotel, we head out for the day’s adventure. Today we start our walk at Saltwater Creek. We will be taking in stunning and ever-changing views passing banksia woodlands, sheltered coves and red-rock platforms. Stop for a dip at the small and scenic Bittangabee Beach in Bittangabee Bay, then on to the nearby Bittangabee Bay Ruins and explore the remnants of incomplete structures dating back to the 1840s. In the 1840s, the Imlay Brothers used Bittangabee Bay as a base for some of the early shore-based whaling operations undertaken in and around Twofold Bay. We also pass vital ecosystems such as heathlands which are home to a remarkable diversity of plant and animal species, many of which occur only in this habitat. In spring and early summer, heathland areas come alive with an array of honeyeaters and other nectar-feeding birds. After our walk, we will head to our cruise boat for a stunning cruise of the pristine and colourful coastline. Encounter birdlife and if we are lucky seals and dolphins (in November you may even spot a migrating whale). Afterwards, transfer back to the Seahorse Inn Hotel for a wonderful dinner in the restaurant featuring fine wine.

Day 3: Bittangabee Bay – Green Cape
Light to Light Walk, Sapphire Coast NSW

After a leisurely breakfast, we set out on our final day towards Green Cape Light station our final destination. Follow a trail that was traditionally travelled by lightkeepers taking supplies that were off-loaded at Bittangabee Bay; look closely for remnants of the old horse-drawn tram track. You’ll find a walkway to the lookout at the tip of Green Cape where you can stop to look for dolphins and take in stunning views across Disaster Bay. Stroll down to the end of the rocky cape and with plenty of good vantage points looking out to the sea, the walk offers an ideal chance to look for whales migrating along the coastline – especially during autumn and spring. Watch out also for seals or seabirds plunging into the ocean waters for a feed of fish. If you’re lucky you may also spot a sea eagle riding the thermal air currents in slow majestic circles, or hovering low over the water before dropping down to catch fish or waterfowl. The Green Cape lighthouse commenced operations in 1883 as part of a plan by Francis Hixson to ‘light the coast like a street with lamps’. This was an especially important development in an age when coastal shipping offered the main communication and supply line between isolated coastal communities and ports such as Sydney and Melbourne. At 29m tall, it was the largest mass concrete structure built in NSW up until that time. Today the light’s operation is fully automated and the NPWS manages the site.

Afterwards, our guides will drop you at Merimbula airport at 2.45 pm for your return flight to Sydney.
