Consultation on the Cape Byron Preliminary Visitor Master Plan closes next Monday 27 March.
Give your feedback on how visitors will experience the Cape Byron area - from nearby beaches to walking and jogging tracks, to parking and getting up to the lighthouse.
A solar powered electric shuttle bus and improved Cape Byron walking tracks are among the proposals.
Also being considered: the completion of the Wategos Beach footpath, extension of the walking track beyond the boardwalk on Lighthouse Road and the Tallow Ridge walking track link to Tallow Beach Road to remove conflicts between walkers and cars, and provide a unique and memorable walk. More than 2800 people walk to the Lighthouse daily and the safety of visitors is paramount. Improved walking tracks and lookouts at Little Wategos and the Most Easterly Point of Mainland Australia are important to protect the endangered ecological grassland communities and to provide for the popular joggers and people enjoying the views and wildlife.
Consultation closes on the 27th of March
