About Bangalow

As you come into town from the west, past the palms outside the pub, Bangalow instantly charms. Verandahs, a single main street in a sleepy country classic you might think this but this is no ordinary bush town. Bangalow has sophisticated tastes, as a short stroll past the cafe's, galleries and therapists' shops along the main street will confirm.

One of the town's minor treasures is the walking track that winds along the edge of Byron Creek. Within a few paces you're swallowed up in a forest of strangler vines and huge, mottled trees that shut out the sunshine. Water monitors scuttle away from the path and into the brown creek alongside. A five-minute stroll will take you to a shady park with neat garden beds and arbours covered with riotous greenery; the perfect spot for a picnic. Bangalow is close to Byron Bay where you can also check out Byron Bay Community Market, Cape Byron Walking Track At Byron Bay and the Cape Byron Headland and Lighthouse.
