Green Cape Lightstation Keeper's Cottages


Perched on the edge of a peninsula, choose from three beautifully-restored keepers' cottages, each offering heritage accommodation with open fireplaces and charming nautical decor. Along with a fully-equipped kitchen and dining and lounge rooms, each cottage offers a comfortable veranda, ideal for enjoying the sea air and whale watching. You can take a free guided tour of the lightstation and walk part of the Light to Light walk. You’ll find a paved path to the lookout at the tip of Green Cape. Stop to look for whales during season and for breathtaking views across Disaster Bay, the site of many shipwrecks. Experience the peaceful, misty mornings and relentless pounding seas from the comfortable isolation of the lightstation. Use it as a base to enjoy and explore the area in and around Ben Boyd National Park, returning to the cosy cottages and a warm fire during the winter months. The coastal walking track is nearby, along with beaches and great spots to fish. Whales can be seen on their migratory route between late May and December, along with seals and a number of seabirds.
