Nobbys Lighthouse is open for the Supercars event weekend with a special family-friendly zone where you don’t need a supercars pass to get in.

The site will open from 11am – 3:30pm on Friday and 11am – 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Public access is an approximate 35-minute walk and visitors are encouraged to wear walking shoes, sunscreen and a hat. Access is from King Edward Park along the Bathers Way as it winds around the coast from Newcastle Beach to Nobbys Beach. From here you can head along the Breakwall and up the hill to the Lighthouse site. (Click here to view map
