Blissful Byron Bay

For a vibrant green coastline, an idyllic deep blue sea and the most laid-back atmosphere you could possibly imagine, escape for the weekend (or perhaps forever) to the NSW North Coast’s own utopia at Byron Bay. The balmy Byron days are best enjoyed with beer (or organic wheatgrass vegan soy smoothie) in hand and beach adjacent.

For sun, sand and some very interesting people watching, score yourself a good spot on Byron Bay’s Main Beach. Get the blood pumping with a trek around the most easterly point in Australia at Cape Byron, and while you’re there see if you can spot a wallaby or two from Captain Cook Lookout. Byron Bay is known around the country for its alternative lifestyle, so you can also be sure that after days spent relaxing and/or exploring, the nights will be no less enjoyable!

Byron Bay’s Top 10

10. Minyon Falls Located in Nightcap National Park, there are few sights more impressive in the region than these sparkling falls. 5. Dolphin Kayaking Glide out on a half-day kayaking tour around Cape Byron Marine Park and say g’day to the cheeky dolphins.
9. Two Sisters Rocks Make sure you bring your camera to get some phenomenal snaps of these robust stone formations jutting out of the ocean. 4. Day Trip to Nimbin Just a short drive out of Byron Bay is the beautiful township of Nimbin, where you will stumble across some excellent markets (and perhaps a ‘special’ brownie or two).
8. Arakwal National Park The lushest greenery on the coast and an abundance of Australian flora and fauna just waiting to be explored and discovered. 3. Julian Rocks Marine Reserve Rated one of Australia’s top dive spots, discover an underwater bounty right here.
7. Byron Bay Eco Tours Strap yourself into the back of a 4WD for an off-road adventure chock-full of local info. 2. Lighthouse Built in 1901, this lighthouse is the most easterly and most powerful in the whole country.
6. Samudra A Byron favourite – relax your spirit at this all-inclusive surf and yoga retreat. 1. The Pass For Byron’s most famous surf breaks (and maybe even a dolphin or two) this beach is perfection.

Byron Bay Activities

Premier holiday destination, elicitor of oohs and ahs and lurer of travel photographers the world over, Byron Bay is a tasty oceanside town in New South Wales, Australia. A short drive from Brisbane, Queensland and a considerably longer, yet breathtakingly scenic, trek up the coast from Sydney, the tidy community of 5,000 people is a veritable magnet for domestic and international arrivals alike.

Byron Bay’s juiciest carrot is geography. For many, this pretty corner of New South Wales is the product of divine providence and upon first glance, one can easily see why. A surge of lush, verdant hinterland unites with a handsome curl of seashore to form one of the most achingly gorgeous slivers of real estate in Australia. It’s too far-gone to recall when Byron Bay was a hidden gem and indeed, in the decades since, the town has attracted all manner of hippies, backpackers, surfers, counterculture beatniks, artists, organic locavores, yoga instructors and yes, moneyed spa resort-goers. It all makes for an eclectic road trip target and, despite the frenzied popularity, a surprisingly laid-back and beguiling one at that. From picture-postcard beaches to first-class restaurants, phenomenal nature reserves to vibrant festivals, Byron Bay is a consistent charmer.
