Byron Bay

Byron Bay is world-renowned for its activities on the water, beautiful landscape, and laidback lifestyle. Despite it being a small town, it draws more than a million visitors a year from around the world. About 30 minutes away is the gateway to the region at Ballina Byron Gateway Airport. By car, it is a 9-hour drive from Sydney and a much more comfortable hour’s drive from the Gold Coast.

The beaches of Byron Bay are quite a highlight of the city as they are not just beautiful, but also the jumping off point for some of the activities the area is made famous for. Byron Main is the most well-known beach of them all, and Watego’s Beach and Tallow’s Beach also have their own unique character. These are also sites that are popular for surfing. Other marine activities include whale watching and diving, and on land, a cycle way along the beach provides recreational leisure. A number of small towns are within easy reach for those looking to explore, and scenic wonders include the volcanic plug of Mount Warning.
