A man has been rescued from the cliff face beneath the Cape Byron Lighthouse this morning (Friday, December 28).
Police and rescue workers were called to the site at around 11am after receiving a call from a man in distress.
Echonetdaily understands he had attempted to traverse an unpathed area to get to the southern side of the lighthouse but had become stuck.
Members of the Brunswick Valley Rescue Squad abseiled down the cliff and assisted the man to get to the bottom of the cliff where he was able to return to safety.
The man was unharmed but the incident created additional congestion on the narrow road up to the lighthouse, which was already choked with tourists and other visitors.
