Things to do
Step back to the 1840's in the Historic Lighthouse to experience the daily life of a 19th century light-keeping family. Hike the headlands, exploring the remains of a Second World War coastal defense battery while watching for hundreds of migrating whales whose arrival is celebrated with an annual Cape Spear Lighthouse Whale Festival. Then, savour the unique experience of afternoon tea in the 1836 lighthouse amid vistas of passing icebergs.
