Day 1 - Pambula River Kayaking and Bittangabee Bay to Green Cape Lighthouse - 8km walk

This afternoon you’ll do the shortest section of the light to light walk, Bittangabee Bay to Green Cape Lighthouse. The walk follows a route that has been travelled by light keepers over many years. Originally, supplies for the lighthouse were offloaded at Bittangabee Bay and transferred by horse-drawn tram to Green Cape Lighthouse. Rare ground parrots and striated field wrens are sometimes seen along the track and in the spring the area blooms with wild flowers. 

The walk will finish at Green Cape Lighthouse, our accomodation for the next two nights. Perched on the edge of a peninsula are beautifully restored cottages and the Green Cape Lighthouse. Each cottage offers a comfortable verandah, ideal for enjoying the sea air and whale watching in the right season, large bedrooms and heated lounge rooms and shared bathroom facilities. 

Tonight, relax in the lounge room with a hot drink in hand, watch the mesmerising ocean on the verandah or if you’re feeling active take a walk around the premises and look out for the resident wombats and other wildlife, the choice is yours.
