Crowdy Head Lighthouse

Experience Details

Located 33 kilometres north-east of Taree, the historic Crowdy Head Lighthouse was built 1878-1879 and is one of five small lighthouses built on the NSW coast. 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, unbeknown to him, the Birpai Nation had been calling them the Three Brothers for millennia. 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 several spots on the north coast that have 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.
