Ah, The View

It was a hell of a climb up to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse but well worth it looking down upon Palm Beach.

And yes, Barrenjoey is one hell of a name eh, but this makes sense of it (sort of):

The headland was first named as "Barrenjuee" by Governor Phillip in 1788 from the Aboriginal name for small wallaby. After many interpretations, the name is now "Barranjoey" on Admiralty maps and "Barrenjoey" on road maps.
