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.

The South Coast of NSW suffered from significant bushfires in January 2020. Part of this walk has been affected and we have adjusted our walks to encompass some spectacular alternatives until they reopen.

Pre-tour accommodation at the Seahorse Inn including dinner and breakfast as well as transfers from Merimbula Airport to the hotel if required. Please select this option when booking if required.

TRAIL NOTES: 7kms Medium Grade. Terrain is a combination of gentle hills with occasional steps and short hills. 

WALK ITINERARY: 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. 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.
