The heritage listed Barrenjoey Lighthouse built in 1881 sits on the top of Barrenjoey Head, Sydney’s most northern point.
The lighthouse is 91 m above the sea level and its surrounding offers breathtaking view over the whole beach, Broken Bay on the other side or the endless ocean from the opposite side of the Barrenjoey Head.
During the season, whales can be also spotted from there. The way up is a a short but steep bushwalk rewarding each visitor with plenty of beautiful landscape views as well.
The beach itself is around 2 km long and it is a great location for a daytrip from the city and has a golf club nearby as well as sailing club and surf school. The place is easily reachable from the city centre (Circular Quay or Central Station) by bus.
