Byron Bay is the most easterly point of Australia and as you would expect... it has a lighthouse on its cliffs. The location of the lighthouse is spectacular in itself but spreading out below are magnificent beaches that attract not only throngs of sunseeking humans but a myriad of marine life as well.
The whales can be watched from the shore as can the pods of playful dolphins that will happily share the waves with the boardriders.
Byron has reliable surf breaks coming around the point and as such it is a mecca for surfers.
Just two hours by road from Brisbane and one hour from the Gold Coast, Byron and its hinterland is a treasure for tourists. Renowned for its alternative lifestyle population Byron is where you may find that something different.
The atmosphere is one of super relaxed and casual and of course the surfing culture and theme flows through most elements of the township.
Byron is full of accommodation options from backpacker hostels to executive apartments and swish 5 star offerings. A trip to Byron refreshes the senses and leaves you feeling like you have had a real holiday - even if just for the day.
