Crowdy Head Lighthouse

Located 33 kilometres north-east of Taree on the mid north coast, is the historic Crowdy Head Lighthouse. This lighthouse was designed and erected between 1878 - 1879 as one of only five small lighthouses built on the NSW coast.

The panoramic views from the lighthouse reserve are breathtaking. Looking north you can see beyond Diamond Head and the Three Brothers mountains (south, middle and north), which were named by Captain James Cook in 1770 as he sailed up the east coast. To the south you can see as far as Seal Rocks.

This is a great spot for a bit of whale watching as Crowdy Head is amongst a number of spots on the north coast that has a great easterly position. The whales migrate north to warmer waters during May to July, and return to the rich southern feeding grounds in the Antarctic during August to October.
