General Information & Further Reading on the Light to Light Walk

Camp Set-Up

Camps are fully established when you arrive at the end of the day - but we do ask for a bit of help to pack up from those who are willing and able to assist.

Maximum Party size
Light 2 Light walking tours will have a maximum of 12 walkers, except for the Light 2 Light 3 day
Lighthouse Stay walk which has a maximum of 8 walkers.


Light 2 Light tours are generally adults only, however for private group bookings, children are welcome by prior arrangement.


The terrain is easy for the most part, but there are some short sections which require walking on rocky platforms or beach cobbles.

Temperature & Climate

Ben Boyd National Park enjoys warm summers and mild conditions in autumn and spring.
In early spring maximum temperatures are generally in the high teens. We are more likely to have stronger winds, but only on a few days.

Summer maximum temperatures are generally in the low to mid-twenties Celsius and are moderated
by north-easterly sea breezes. We enjoy mild summer evenings – perfect after a good day’s walk.
The Autumn months are often the most stable with warm days and slightly cooler evenings, just right
for sitting around the campfire.


Throughout the year there are around 4 – 5 days with rain per month, you’ll need a raincoat but hopefully you won’t get to use it!


The Australian Bureau of Meteorology runs a weather station at the Green Cape at the southern end of the walk – see the climate averages for temperature and rainfall.

Ben Boyd National Park
Our walks are in Ben Boyd National Park south of Eden on the Far South Coast of NSW. Ben Boyd
National Park was first established in 1971.

The National park has an area of 10,485 hectares and is comprised of three sections: large areas
north and south of Eden and a much smaller area north of the Pambula River. The Light to Light walk
is located in the southern section.

The park protects an important area of coastal plant and animal communities including old growth
forest, extensive heathland, estuarine and freshwater wetlands, dune ecosystems, a large number of
threatened native animals species and bio-geographically significant plant species.  A number of
cultural features are found along the walk, most notably Boyd's Tower, Green Cape Lightstation and
the ruins at Bittangabee Bay associated with whaling and lighthouse activities, as well as a number of
Aboriginal sites.

You can find more information on the values of the Park in the Plan of Management.
