Views from the walk around Hornby Lighthouse out to the ocean and the North Head are beautiful. This is the entrance by sea to Sydney. The lighthouse was built in 1858 after the wrecking of the Dunbar and was the third lighthouse to be build in New South Wales.
We were surprised to see some keen people rock fishing down below us as we looked from what is left of the 19th century gun emplacements, over and down the cliffs. It was low tide and one man was fishing from rocks that were covered in green and not wearing any sort of life jacket. Recipe for disaster. Good spot for whale watching.
Close to Hornby Lighthouse, the lighthouse keeper’s cottage has wonderful views to Sydney, North Head and out to the ocean.
