A very interesting and very scenic walk taking in the merchant mariners memorial and lookout and the Norah Head lighthouse before exploring the rockshelf below Norah Head. The lighthouse is very picturesque and the setting is beautiful with some fantastic views along the coastline from the paths around the area. The merchant mariners memorial adds some more historic interest to the walk. The rockshelf is interesting to explore with plenty of shapes and textures in the rock.
