Transfers to and from the Light to Light Walk
The 31km Light to Light Walk is in the southern section of Ben Boyd National Park on the Far South Coast of NSW. Boyds Tower, at the northern tip of the Light to Light Walk and the most popular starting point, is 35km south of Eden on a (largely) bitumen road.
Quite frankly, it’s an absolute pain to get to this beautiful walk without some help. And impossible if there’s just one carload of travellers.
So we offer a transfer for independent walkers.
We also offer water drops and other helpful services – talk to us.
How Transfers work
You choose where to leave your own car: Boyd’s Tower or Green Cape Lighthouse.
We pick you up from your car and drive you and your gear to your starting point. If you have a small ‘city’ car or a hire car, we recommend leaving the vehicle at Boyd’s Tower (to avoid gravel roads). We’ll transfer you to Green Cape so you can walk South to North.
Or leave the car at Green Cape Lighthouse and walk North to South from Boyd’s Tower. (You can even finish with a night of luxury at the Green Cape Lighthouse cottages.)
We make walking the Light to Light Walk do-able.
We have 2 comfortable, modern and clean Subaru vehicles: one can carry up to 4 people + 4 big packs, the other can carry up to 6 passengers with smaller packs. Or we can make both vehicles available. Talk to us about your needs.
And yes, we have a baby seat for little ones who ‘walk’ the track on mum or dad’s back.
Our transfer fees vary depending on where you want to go and how large your packs are.
We also need to ensure enough space in our vehicles to comply with Covid-safe measures.
Travel on gravel roads is slightly dearer than bitumen driving for obvious reasons.
- Pick up from Green Cape, drop off at Boyd’s Tower: $250 per car load (1 minimum, 5 maximum)
- Pick up from Boyd’s Tower, drop off at Green Cape: $250 per car load (1 minimum, 5 maximum)
- No extra cost for use of baby seat
- Any other transport: $50 per hour + $2.00 per km on gravel roads, $50 per hour + $1.50 per km on bitumen roads

We asked some independent walkers what would have made their walk more pleasant and the first comment was:
“It rained – which didn’t bother me when I was walking. But I would have liked something dry to sit on. I had to sit in my tent to eat.”
Some Options and Ideas:
- Get just a bit of help to make the walk more enjoyable:
- We can drop you off, put up your tent (or you can hire from us!) in your booked campsite, put all your stuff in there and voila – you’re ½ set up already.
- We can leave campfire wood and starters for you (you’re not allowed to collect firewood in the National Park).
- We can put your drinks and eats on ice in a lockable container – in your tent.
- And we can come back the next day to pick up the tent and gear (after you pack it up that is). You can collect your gear from us after the Walk.
- We can do water drops at Saltwater and/or Bittangabee. There is no potable water guaranteed in the campsite. Safe to drink after boiling only.
