The lighthouse is really well looked after and the views are truly something special. You do have to pay a small fee to go up to the top but it is honestly worth it.

Popped in here the other day as I was driving past - unfortunately it was closed at the time but it was well maintained and even had some self catering places for rent. Have added this to my list to do sometime soon.

If you like spectacular views or all things nautical, Great Fish Lighthouse is well worth the detour and the somewhat 'rugged' road. Take a picnic and a camera.

The road is a bit rough to get to the lighthouse, and we had to wait for someone to come, but once we were in, the gentleman that assisted us was very pleasant and informative of the history and functioning of the lighthouse.
