Green Cape Lighthouse Cottages

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

The Cottages were previously used by the Lightkeeper and Assistant Lightkeeper and have been carefully restored maintaining many of the heritage features. Situated on

the Green Cape Headland you will revel in spectacular sunrises and sunsets over the Tasman Sea and Disaster Bay. This is a prime whale watching location between May and November also giving the opportunity to view bird and marine life year-round.

Use the Lightstation as a base from which you can enjoy and explore the area in and around Ben Boyd National Park or trek the 30km Light to Light Walk along the coast to Boyd's Tower, returning to the cosy cottages and a warm fire in the winter months.

A free tour will be made available to Green Cape guests by arrangement with the lighthouse caretaker.

Whale watching

Green Cape offers the opportunity to see whales travelling past on their migratory route between late May and early December. A herd of Australian and New Zealand fur seals is regularly seen frolicking in the waters off the point of Green Cape.

Light to Light Walk

The Light to Light Walk reflects the location of an historic lighthouse at either end of the walk. At the northern end overlooking Twofold Bay, Boyds Tower was constructed in the late 1840s as part of an ambitious plan by Benjamin Boyd to establish Eden as a major commercial port.

To the south, Green Cape Lighthouse commenced operations in 1883 as part of a plan by Francis Hixson to "light the coast like a street with lamps". Today the Green Cape Light is fully automated and the National Parks and Wildlife Service look after the historic lightstation precinct.

One of the most memorable aspects of the walk is the dramatic coastal landscape with its red rocky outcrops, headlands and sheltered coves.
