Barrenjoey Lighthouse

Barrenjoey Lighthouse is situated near Palm Beach in New South Wales. It is quite a walk to reach the top and with a 5 year old and a 2-year old, it was very brave of us to go there. The path we had to follow was so steep that we had to take turns carrying our youngest son and that is with break around five minutes in between. Yes, it was challenging but the view when you reach the top is spectacular. It was worth all the hardships. The photos below are some of the photos I took. See for yourself.

Our car is one of the cars parked on the right side of the screen. Oh yeah, we started from there.

It was a very lovely experience especially it was with my boys. We would do it again one day but in the afternoon as we would like to stay until the sun sets.

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Oh how nice! I remember during my childhood days how my cousins would bring me to a lighthouse in Batangas and we would share ghost stories there! I have always been in awe of lighthouses because of the stories that went with it

  2. What a spectacular view! No matter how hard it is to navigate, that is with two kids in tow, you made it. Lighthouses have some kind of charm which entices people to visit all the time.
