Synonymous with sand, sea and surfing, Australia's Byron Bay is a sunny town situated in New South Wales. This coastal heaven is a destination for all – featuring windswept beaches, yoga retreats, excellent cafes and breweries. Be it a relaxing hideaway or an adventurous getaway, Byron Bay gives you exactly the kind of holiday you want.
A classic Byron Bay experience involves a walk to the Cape Byron Lighthouse, from where you can witness views of the glimmering blue sea touching the sky. Take your experience up a notch by visiting the lighthouse to catch the glimmering rays of the sun at sunrise or sunset.
Surfing is one of Byron Bay’s most popular activities. Depending on your level of expertise, there’ll be instructors to help you glide through the frothy waves, or guide you to the spots frequented by experienced surfers. You can also spend an afternoon with marine life at Julian Park, a popular scuba diving site in the town. Here you can spot grey nurse sharks, leopard sharks, turtles and manta rays.
Tastes from all over the globe meet at Byron Bay in its award-winning restaurants and eateries. With a plate full of fresh regional produce, Harvest restaurant offers a sustainable dining experience to its visitors.
