Must Do

Byron Bay Area

From the lush hinterland to the sparkling beaches on the coast, the region is full of natural wonders. Byron Bay is a melting pot of surf culture, alternative philosophies and hedonistic indulgence.

Byron Bay's natural credentials are impeccable – humpback whales cruise past the headland, storms create rainbows on the mountains across the bay, hang-gliders ride the thermals above the lighthouse.

The laid-back towns of Brunswick Heads, plus the arts-loving villages of Bangalow and Mullumbimby, combine the casual vibe of coastal retreats with a touch of city style.

You'll find a variety of accommodation in Byron Bay that should suit any needs from plush hotels, retreats and resorts to bed & breakfasts, hostel and camping options.
