Byron Bay Area Attractions

Attractions in Byron Bay

One of the best things about Byron Bay's attractions is the ability to explore them at your own pace. The area has a laidback vibe that matches well with a relaxed visit.

Famous for its pristine beaches, lakes and national parks you’ll see a broad range of typically Australian land and sea-scapes, including surf beaches, waterways and bushland. Simple pleasures are often the best - watching the sun rise over the ocean from the headland at Cape Byron or going for a long beach walk or bush hike. Take the family and learn to surf together in warm waters or try kayaking.

The Byron Bay area is a chic seaside zone with a New Age tinge and loads of style. Stay in luxury B&Bs or beachside retreats and resorts, find original wares while shopping at various local markets, and enjoy superb dining experiences in the region’s restaurants.
