Byron Bay

One of Australia’s most beloved seaside towns, Byron Bay, set between the crystalline waters of the Pacific Ocean and a beautiful sub-tropical hinterland, is a place of sanctuary and inspiration.

Famous for its pristine beaches, you have options for calmer swimming conditions or awesome surf. Meanwhile the system of National Parks in the area, with its walks, waterfalls, swimming holes and coral reefs, offers tranquillity and invigoration.

With this sublime location and friendly, vibrant community, it is a natural home for the creative spirit. A haven for artists and artisans of all kinds, it also plays host to a number of world-famous festivals throughout the year, including Splendour In The Grass and Bluesfest as well as the Byron Bay Film and Writer’s Festivals.

Accommodation for visitors to all these attractions is abundant, ranging from five-star resorts to camping options. And with the line-up of restaurants, cafes, and bars, a quality night-out in Byron is assured. A visit to this gorgeous township on the far NSW north-coast will be a perfect holiday.
