Byron Bay is a beach lover’s paradise. When you arrive, you’ll see that many people are dressed simply in shorts and t-shirts. Surfing is quite popular in this area, thus many people own surfboards. The town has a casual and pleasant atmosphere.
There’s much to do even if you don’t surf. You can go kayaking, swimming, whale watching, walking to a lighthouse, or trying yoga. And what if you just want to unwind? You can relax on the smooth beach and read a book while basking in the sun.
Byron Bay is also a fantastic foodie destination. There are plenty cool cafes, restaurants, and shops to visit. Many visitors fall in love with Australian cuisine and return again and again.
If your dream is to see wild whales, you’re in the right place! From approximately June – November, by boat, or just by walking along the coast, you will see them every time …Discliamer. not ‘every time’ but very likely ; D
Just be patient and focus, like with the wild dolphins we saw in Port Macquarie!
Going hiking to reach the lighthouse means that you will pass through the most eastern point of Australia! Isn’t that exciting? Yes, it is! This is something to check on your dream list.
After a short walk, where I’m sure you saw lots of birds like Kookaburras, magpies or even garbage birds, it’s time to relax on the beach and listening to the sound of the waves. After, there are some delicious options for food, with very funky café’s, restaurants, ice cream shops and juice bars at every turn. Did you know that the top reason travellers return to Australia for a second time, is for the food! You will not be disappointed.
Byron Bay is definitely a place that you can’t miss on the East Coast of Australia. This is one of the highlights on the tour where you can do great shopping, enjoy an array of activities and be immersed in the laid back Australian beach culture.
