Hornby Lighthouse

Hornby Lighthouse

Atop South Head at the very eastern edge of the Harbor’s lower lip, this unique (and delightfully tourist-free) spot has stupendous views of the city skyline. The lighthouse itself is part of Sydney Harbour National Park, a smattering of locales around the metropolitan area worthy of preservation. Take a picnic and take it all in.
