Norah Head Lighthouse Reserve (The Reserve) is a public place which includes a Light Tower that offers guided tours 7 days per week, 2 very popular short-stay holiday quarters and an on-site Manager’s Residence. The Reserve is historically significant and culturally rich; it is adjacent to beautiful beaches, popular fishing spots and is the home of some of the Central Coast’s most beautiful natural bushland, flora and fauna.
The Reserve is an ideal viewing place for the annual migration of whales, moving north through May-June and returning south later in the year. Seals and sea lions can often be seen near the large rock shelf immediately below the Light Tower.
The Reserve is a very popular location for various celebrations, including but not limited to, wedding ceremonies, receptions, festivals and special family events.
The Reserve is a very busy place throughout the year.
