Point Hicks Lighthouse Nature Tour

Macleod Street, Bairnsdale Railway Station, Bairnsdale, Victoria, 3875

Join a small group of nature lovers to explore the remote coastline around Point Hicks in Croajingolong National Park. This short escape is a chance to get away and let the team take care of the detail while you immerse yourself in nature.

Imagine walks along unspoilt sandy beaches, exploring rocks on the headland, discovering what washes up on the beach and wandering along soft leafy tracks through coastal forests. By day listen to quiet birdsong in the forest and by night go to sleep with the sound of waves crashing on the rocks outside your window.

Wildlife experiences are a regular joy, whether it is a wallaby in the forest, lizards basking on rocks or seals playing in the ocean swell. Your guide will share a great love of this coastal environment with you. Return home both refreshed and informed.

Your accommodation is in historic lighthouse keeper’s cottage at Point Hicks. Learn of a rich history as you join a guided lighthouse tour. You can also contribute to the environment, perhaps by picking up some beachwashed plastic rubbish that poses a risk to marine birds and wildlife or helping with some simple wildlife monitoring activities to suit your interests.
