Point Perpendicular

Point-Perpendicular-Lighthouse

Enjoy the ocean breeze and the beautiful views at Point Perpendicular.

Located at Jervis Bay, this spectacular lighthouse is located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, providing incredible and stunning views and also a brilliant vantage point for whale-watching.

You can’t access the inside of the lighthouse, but the view from the grounds is worth the drive!

The lighthouse was built in 1899 to replace the Cape St George Lighthouse, a lighthouse built in the wrong position. Tt was not visible to the northern approach at Jervis Bay and failed to warn of offshore reefs.

The Point Perpendicular lighthouse was closed in 1993 and now stands as a landmark atop the cliffs.

There are also some great bush walks in the area.

Perpendicular Point walking track Sitting on the top of the sheer cliffs is a fantastic place to gaze out at the sparkling blue waters and a great vantage point for whale watching and spotting dolphins.

Birdlife is abundant – honeyeaters come in to feed off the banksias and glossy black cockatoos nibble at the black she-oaks. If you’re a native flower lover, this easy walk is a must in early spring. You’ll see boronia, flannel flower, everlasting daisy and wedding bush dotted amongst the bushes. Wildflowers line the path and make a trip in spring a wonderful proposition.
