A road climbs up to the lighthouse
Located on an army barracks, pass through security to access the top of the cliffs and the lighthouse.
Next to the lighthouse proper lies a house with information on the lighthouse’s history.
Access to the interior of the lighthouse is restricted however the view from the clifftops is well worth the drive.
You’ll get some incredible views out to Jervis Bay from the top of the cliffs. During whale watching season from May to November this spot is earmarked as one of the best whale-watching spots in all of NSW to watch the humpbacks migrate.
Point Perpendicular is also a popular climbing destination for those looking for a serious challenge. Named for its sheer edge and cliff face which is literally perpendicular to the horizon.
The light station stood as part of a major coastal light in a network of navigational aids operated and maintained by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.
The lighthouse has been replaced since however the building remains of high historical importance.
