Watch the Sunset Over the Water
If you’re from the east side of Australia, watching the sun set over the water is sure to be a huge novelty. The Vlaming Head Lighthouse is a great spot to catch the sun going down and be sure to pack a picnic and perhaps a bottle of champagne. If you’re in town at the right time, you can also see humpback whales migrating from the headland.

Take a ride on a SUP
