Cape Byron State Conservation Area is located in North-Eastern New South Wales, three kilometres from the township of Byron Bay. The Reserve is jointly managed by the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Arakwal (Bundjalung) people of Byron Bay.

The Reserve offers a magnificent cliff top walking track which winds its way through diverse plant communities, offering panoramic views of the ocean and north coast hinterland.

The Cape Byron Lighthouse has stood on the most easterly point of the Australian mainland for over a century. The rugged headland, surrounded by sheltered rainforest gullies and subtropical waters, is a great spot for watching turtles, dolphins and humpback whales on their annual migration.

NPWS offers a wide variety of opportunities for visitors including volunteer run Lighthouse Climbs, private Lighthouse Tours, Cultural and historic Tours and whale watching events throughout the year.
