Sunrise at Cape Byron
This is perhaps the prettiest lighthouse in Australia. Cape Byron is the eastern-most spot of continental Australia. Hence it is the first spot on the Great Southern Land that is kissed by the rays of the sun every morning. In 2010, a visit to this part of the world led me to visit this iconic lighthouse several times. The beam emitted from this beacon can be seen all the way to the horizon, and provides a homing reference as one approaches Byron Bay from the Gold Coast. It can clearly be seen from the highway as its twin beams sweep across the landscape.The lighthouse is a favourite spot for locals and visitors alike, especially at sunrise, where the atmosphere is very special. If you are in the area, I definitely recommend making the visit.
