Lexis Byron Bay TAP’s and Hatsushiba Hashimoto Study Tour visited the famous Cape Byron Lighthouse.
It was a windy day, but they bravely climbed to the top of the lighthouse and were rewarded with spectacular views across the bay to Mount Warning and all the way down Tallows Beach to Broken Head.
Their fantastic tour guide, Paul, led them on a tour of the lighthouse and taught some interesting facts. They were amazed to discover that the light, visible for almost fifty kilometres, is powered by a single tiny globe refracted through a giant crystal lens!
Winter is whale spotting season in Byron Bay and they saw a few promising spouts in the ocean, although the whales themselves stayed out of sight.
It was a great experience for the Byron Bay TAP students to take in the panoramic views of Byron Bay from the most easterly point of the Australian mainland.
