A classic 2-day walk between two historic lighthouses through beautiful forest and heathland, past rust-red rocks and cliffs.

We stayed at Bittangabee Bay campground so walked to the lighthouse and back from there. It was so amazing with loads of wildlife. We saw a snake, lyre birds and three goannas! Trail is pretty easy and flat most of the way from Bittangabee to Green Cape.

With Tim our Light 2 Light guide, we thoroughly enjoyed this walk. Staying each night in the Green Cape lighthouse keepers cottage was a delight. Add whales, seals goannas, lyre birds, parrots of all kinds and of course the ever-changing landscape and vegetation, wildflowers, awesome ocean views, indigenous peoples as well as white settlement history this is a walk not to be missed!

Great overnight hike, whales seen off coastline. Need to carry own water which adds to weight of backpack. Highly recommend staying at Green Cape night before.

Incredible views. Whales breaching everywhere. Amazing rocks. Track is well signposted and not particularly hard with no steep or rough sections. It is an easy 2 day walk at slow to moderate pace. The views are too good to go fast. Highly recommend staying at Green cape lighthouse and going during whale migration. We parked one car at Saltwater creek and walked the first day back to Green cape lighthouse. Our second day we parked another car at Boyd tower and walked to Saltwater creek so car shuffle was easier. All roads were in good condition for a high clearance 2WD. National park fees required only.

You can do this bushwalk as a very easy 3 day walk, a moderate 2 day walk or a long day hike. Beautiful scenery with whales along the coast line. Some of the best wildlife I have seen on any bushwalk.

Stunning walk. I completed January 2018, solo. Planned to have a leisurely stroll over 3 days but completed in two after falling in a creek

Sun Dec 31 2017

Began 30/12/17 Boyd Tower Completed 31/12/17 Greencape Lighthouse Camped overnight at Saltwater. Whole hike is 30km and a good way to see some beautiful beaches as well as a lot of wildlife. There's no drinkable water at any stage so prepare to carry at least 8-10L or some sort of purification method for the creeks near Bittangabee Bay.
