Nice views, very limited car parking space. Best to park further down and walk up. There's a few car parking spaces on the road leading up to the light house and a few on the road leading away from the light house. The roads are one way near the top. If I recall correctly it was about $4.50 to park for an hour on one of the roads leading away from the house. You can park the car, walk up the a look around, a few photos and get back to your car in 30 minutes.
Definitely a must see!!! I recommend doing sunset or sunrise here. Sunset is neat because you'll see the light from the lighthouse turn on after the sun goes down with is neat. Beautiful views from all angles as you can see. You can either drive up to the lighthouse or park along the way and take the scenic walk around Byron Bay (either way you do it I do highly recommend doing the scenic walk). Make sure to make it out to the easterly most point along the trail!
