South Solitary Island is located 18 km’s offshore north east from Coffs Harbour, NSW. The island contains a Lighthouse, Head Keeper’s Quarter’s and two Assistant Keeper’s Quarter’s which were built in 1880 and are considered the oldest in the area.

The Lighthouse was automated in 1975 with all residents leaving and the remote Lightstation was abandoned. Access is only capable by helicopter and public admittance is restricted by National Parks and Wildlife. National Parks and Wildlife open the island to visitors for guided tours of the buildings for just two weekends each year.

This August join Precision Helicopters for your return helicopter flight along the Coffs Coast and interpretive guided tour on the island by NPWS Discovery Rangers. The Superior Lightstation Tour is one hour while the Premium Lightstation Tour is two hours and gives you extra time to discover more of the island with the Rangers. For an unequalled experience, choose the private three-hour Ultimate Lightstation Tour.
