Local Attractions

Are you wondering what to do in Byron Bay? Are you cray-cray??? We suggest you go to our favourite blog: LiveByron. Alternatively we have a short list – we call it our Top ten… but we stopped at Twelve. It’s a brief list of local experiences that you definitely won’t want to miss out on:

Explore Broken Head

Whilst the Lighthouse gets all the news, we reckon our very own headland walk a more peaceful & blissful experience. For one, you won’t feel like you’re on a tourist conveyor belt, but most of all, the views from the lookout over the 90 hectare nature reserve & White’s beach are unbelievable.

Bundjalung Country

The Arakwal people have lived and belonged to this land for thousands of years and they have a lot of knowledge – there are tours and guides available for a range of experiences. The Cape Byron Gallery at the Byron Lighthouse is a great place to start.

Byron Lighthouse Walk

You still gotta go – it’s a stunning and invigorating walk, (we suggest you start from Byron town, walk along the beach to the Pass and keep going!), & it is the most easterly point in Australia. It’s an excellent viewpoint for whale (in season) & dolphin spotting and the views are breathtaking.

Markets

Byron Shire has some of the best farmer’s markets in the country. Every Thursday they are in Byron, or take the trip out to Mullumbimby on Fridays, (our pick). There are also the weekly craft markets that do the rounds – Bangalow & The Chanon are definitely worth the trip.

Surf

If you want to learn, there’s a few decent surf schools & plenty of places to hire a board. Or if you want the best surf coaching around, may we suggest Linton Fafie – he will take you to the next level! We can even organise a whole surf/SeaSpray accommodation package

Kayak

Fancy paddling out into the pristine waters of Byron to whale watch and gaze at cavorting dolphins? Thought so. Check out our mates at GoSeaKayaks – guaranteed awesomeness.

Dive

Byron Bay is also a renown place for diving and snorkelling. Julian Rocks in particular, (the rocky islands out in the middle of the Bay) is a nursery for the areas renown Aquatic sanctuary

Ride A Bike

Byron Shire is full of fantastic bike tracks. From Broken Head you can ride into town through rainforest or along the beach at low tide. There are plenty of places you can hire a bike if ours are not suitable &

Byron Hinterland

Take a beautiful day trip into the rolling hills behind Byron. Quaint towns like Bangalow & Newrybar have fantastic cafes or if you’re feeling really energetic, walk up Mount Warning.

Minyon & Killen Falls

Minyon Falls is a spectacular escarpment with a 100 metre drop – about a 1 hour drive from Broken. Just up the road is a spectacular swimming hole and the 10 metre high Killen Falls. There’s even a secret cave behind to explore.

EAT

Byron Shire has an abundance of great produce & creative restaurants and cafes. So get out there & explore! Our favourites include: Doma, Punch & Daisy, Fleet, Three Blue Ducks (The Farm), Harvest, The Beach Cafe, The Pass Cafe, The Treehouse & Suffolk Park Bakery

DRINK

There are no shortages of great places to have a cleansing ale or a cheeky sav blanc. Our faves include: Brunswick Hotel, The Railway Friendly Bar, The Balcony, Stone & Wood Brewery & The Roadhouse.
