  • Omg the stairs!!! Looks massive because they are.. Extra good workout. Son literally ran up them with my wife in tow who looked at them and said its OK you go I'll stay behind...awesome view well worth the multiple heart failures during the climb.
  • Walk up the 253 steps to have an amazing view across Palliser Bay. The short way up is quite exhausting but totally worth it. Don't forget to bring your suscreen and a light jacket, as it is quite windy. Also check out the nearby seal colony. Free toilets and a free car park are available at the bottom of the lighthouse.
