Byron Bay is a small laid-back beach town 170 kilometres south of Brisbane and 700 kilometres north of Sydney.

Find out more about Byron Bay
Byron Bay started gaining prominence as a tourist destination during the 1960s when longboard surfers first discovered the natural breaks at The Pass, Wategos and Cosy Corner. Since then it has grown into a tourist friendly community where many people still remain attached to the town’s hippie roots.
Right in front of the town is Main Beach which where most of the people are. It’s a great place to hang out with friends and family to go swimming and people watching. Right next to the car park is The Wreck, a surf spot where large surf breaks have formed near an actual sunken ship. At the east end of Main Beach you can find The Pass and Wategos, two world renowned surf breaks that put Byron Bay on the map.
Cape Byron, the most easterly part of Australia, is also located here. Tourists usually head on over the Cape Byron Lighthouse, one of the last great Victorian-era lighthouses. From here you can take in spectacular views of the pristine blue waters and even occasionally spot bottlenose dolphins and migrating whales. It is also easily accessible from the town via the Cape Byron Walking Track, which takes you from Lawson Street along Main Beach, up towards Lighthouse Road.
Heading south of Cape Byron and east of town is Arakwal National Park, which is managed by its traditional owners and an important part of Aboriginal heritage. It serves as home to Byron Bay’s local wildlife such as the Wallum Froglet, Wallum Sedge Frog, and numerous bird species. There’s also a path that takes you across the park through to Tallow Beach, which is the favourite surf spot of many locals and a place where the beach meets the bush. The uncrowded and long stretch of beach is also a great place to take dogs out for a walk if you try to reach it from Suffolk Park and the beaches around Broken Head on the south side of town.
Even if you are not keen on surfing, you can still have some fun with other popular water activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving and rock fishing. Clarkes Beach, which is between Main Beach and The Pass, is an ideal location for windsurfing, body boarding and kayaking. You can also take to the air with Byron Bay’s paragliding and hang gliding spots. Or take a more relaxed flight over Byron Bay and past Mount Warning, also known as The Green Cauldron, and take in majestic sunset views over the Byron Bay hinterland.
The town itself is filled with interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. It’s a great place to visit if you’re a vegetarian with the many vegetarian delis around the area. There are also numerous art galleries and artist studios that let get a feel for Byron Bay’s eclectic mix of alternative cultures. And throughout the year, Byron Bay plays host to numerous music, arts and cultural festivals.
Byron Bay’s roving markets during Sundays also offer a range of local produce, as well as arts and crafts and add to the town’s unique atmosphere. If you’re in the mood for a more restful retreat, day spas and yoga studios can be found dotted all across Byron Bay’s main streets.
If you want to get away from all the action in Byron Bay, you can treat yourself to a countryside drive through the Australian hinterland and visit Minyan Waterfalls or Mount Warning. You can also take a day trip to Nimbin in the Northern Rivers and enjoy the rainbow region’s great sights and take in a bit of the local lifestyle.
