For something different explore them via a ride a Harley Davidson or join a cycling tour with a local guide who knows the best roads to travel.
Outdoor adventures abound with World Heritage-listed national parks that can be explored along easy walking trails and boardwalks. Foodie highlights include local farmers markets at Byron Bay and Bangalow, Tropical Fruit World - smell and taste one of the world’s largest variety of tropical fruit – and the Madura Tea plantation where you can sample locally-grown teas. All of these can be visited on a tour, including stops at local hinterland producers.
Byron Bay is also a great spot for a sea turtle snorkeling tour. The Julian Rocks Marine Reserve is one of the few snorkel sites where you can swim with tropical species found on the Great Barrier Reef. The reserve is home to three different species of sea turtle, an assortment of rays, hard and soft corals, friendly wobbegong sharks and more than 400 species of fish.
