Barrenjoey Headland features a beautifully constructed Hawkesbury Sandstone lighthouse, which is possibly the Northern Beaches' most notable landmark. The panoramic views of Pittwater, Broken Bay and Palm Beach are unforgettable.

The 1km walk to the top requires moderate fitness and will take about 30 minutes each way from Governor Phillip parking area.

There are also glossy black cockatoos, bentwing bats, flying foxes, long-nosed bandicoots, possums and squirrel gliders.
