Smoky Cape is south east of the village of South West Rocks in an area known as Arakoon. Smoky Cape is part of the Hat Head National Park with the historic Smoky Cape Lighthouse perched on top of the headland making it the most elevated lighthouse in New South Wales.
Tours of the lighthouse need to be pre-booked through the Smoky Cape Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast and Cottage which offer quality accommodation in the former lighthouse keepers residence.
There are two lookouts at Smoky Cape, one at the base of the lighthouse and the other is Captain Cooks Lookout near the car park. Two bushwalking tracks start from Captain Cooks Lookout where there are public toilets, barbecues and picnic tables.
At the base of Smoky Cape is a National Park campground which has a pit toilet.
