As we sit around the Light to Light campfire with our guests, we’re always eager to listen to the suggestions they have for how we can provide new opportunities for people to explore and appreciate this spectacular part of the world.

“Winter is really a beautiful time of the year down here. And so, we are thrilled to launch our new Light to Light Camps Winter Walk.”

One thing we keep hearing (and that confirms for us what we already know about this place): “Winter is really a beautiful time of the year down here.”

The temperatures are pretty mild, with daytime temps around 18 or 19C.

And while the nights get cool, that’s the perfect time to enjoy a roaring camp fire, a warming glass of wine, your own private hot shower, and luxurious beds, sheets and sleeping bags.

Plus, doing the Light to Light Walk in Winter means you avoid any crowds, and get to have the isolated, pristine beaches and stunning headlands to yourself.

And so, we are thrilled to launch our new Light to Light Camps Winter Walk.

It covers the full 31km Light to Light Walk of our classic Light to Light Camps tour, but also includes a night in the cozy cottages at Green Cape Lighthouse.

Our Light to Light Winter Walk series begins in June and is expected to fill up quickly, so reserve your dates now.

That looks comfy.

If you’ve done some walking before, the 17km on the first day and 13.5km on the second day should stretch you enough without being too challenging.

No matter how experienced you are in multi-day trekking, nobody will argue that it’s much more enjoyable to walk without the weight of a big pack! Let Light to Light Camps take the weight off for you.

And, we might want to spoil you a little. In your Light to Light Camp at Saltwater Beach you’ll enjoy a hot, private shower, a memory foam mattress, crisp white percale sheets and luxurious sleeping bags, pillows and towels, plus the finest local food, beer and wine.

Interested? Give us a shout.
We tailor Light to Light Camps Winter Walks to suit your interests.

The Winter Walk commences with a road trip to Green Cape Lighthouse, where you’ll spend your first night.

First, we’ll explore some of the treasures in its shadow – the big rock platforms at City Rock (popular with local fishermen), the great vantage point and northerly view from the precipice at Pulpit Rock, and the sombre Ly-Ee-Moon cemetery, where stand tombstones erected to the 71 persons lost in the Ly-ee-moon shipwreck here at Green Cape in 1886.

Hiking the Light to Light Walk south to north becomes more and more colourful, and spectacular, as you go.

Starting off in relatively low heathland, keep an eye out for the elusive and extremely rare Eastern Ground Parrot.

After a deep and relaxing night’s sleep surrounded by the peaceful soundtrack of the Australian bush and the waves crashing on Saltwater Beach, you’ll be up and feeling refreshed and ready for your last trek.

Continuing on through ti-tree and old man banksia, stroll along the edge of beautiful fern-lined creeks, and through the enchanting Bittangabee Bay. Just past here you’ll start to feel the wind in your hair as you traverse massive rock platforms, and watch the grand Pacific Ocean pound against the shore.

You’ll know you’re at Saltwater when you come down a small hill and see a pristine surf beach ahead of you. Keep an eye out for one of the friendly goannas who frequently wander along the sand.

If you’re ready to rest your weary legs, head to the campground when the track leads off through the bush and we’ll be waiting for you with your beverage of choice poured, the campfire roaring, your comfy beds waiting and a hot shower to bring life back into your tired limbs.

Kick back for the best bit – we’ll be waiting on you hand and foot so you can just relax and enjoy tasty nibbles, a good wine (yes we have beer too!) and a delicious meal by the fire.

Delicious.

This walk is around 13km of the most spectacular coastline you are ever likely to encounter. Mind-blowing beauty, rugged red rocks and sapphire waters. Clean and remote beaches. Be ready to be impressed. Make sure you’ve got ample space on your camera card.

We will be waiting for you at Boyd’s Tower, a local gem of a place that you’ll be at your leisure to explore.

The tower itself dominates a landscape that takes pride of place in everybody’s holiday album.

Unique and ancient geological features, big kelp forests swaying along the intertidal zone and an impressive diversity of birdsong. If history is your thing, dive into tales of the amazing whaling history of Twofold Bay.

By now you’ll be pretty keen to take some weight off your legs – so relax in our comfortable car as we drive you back to your accommodation in Eden, Pambula or Merimbula!

This tour option is extremely limited.
At this stage, we can only offer it for four groups during June and July,
so please book quickly to reserve your adventure.

A former editor of the local paper, Jake Lynch left Eden in 2006 to follow his heart, and general sense of adventure, across the United States to work for recreation and community development nonprofits. But some opportunities are just too good to pass up, and he was very easily lured back to join the Light to Light Camps team in 2016.
