The Barrenjoey Head lighthouse, constructed in 1881, is found on the¬†Barrenjoey headland. It’s a short uphill walk from the carpark and definitely worth it for the views alone. Lighthouse tours are available on Sundays, run by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. Highly recommended!

Fun fact: The outside of the lighthouse has never been washed. The wind keeps it clean.

The forecast wasn’t looking the best, but Sarah and I decided we would head out regardless. It ended up being a lovely short walk with amazing views from the top. We had a great picnic at North Era beach before heading back home.
