Norah Head Lighthouse Tours

Norah Head Lighthouse

A shining beacon on the spectacular coastline of NSW’s Central Coast, welcome to Norah Head Lighthouse, where time travel is the real deal.

Built between 1901 and 1903, this historic icon is one of Australia’s few lighthouses that’s open to the public seven days a week.

Throw on your Lighthouse Keeper’s hat and step back in time with a lighthouse tour. Fire-up the calves and climb all 96 steps of this remarkable tower to the very top. Trust us, the breathtaking 360-degree views of the Central Coast from the tower balcony are worth the effort. You’ll learn about how the lights worked back in the day, catch a glimpse of a passing pod of dolphins or a gliding eagle or kestrel and hear some incredible shipwreck stories – the perfect fuel to use next time you gather ‘round the campfire.

Opening hours:
We’re open from 10am to 2pm every day (except Christmas Day and Anzac Day) with the last tours at 1.30pm. Oh, and don’t worry about booking, just show up and we’ll make sure you’re well taken care of
