Well worth the trip!

Beautiful and charming city, with a lot of small shops and cafès. Visit the ligthhouse, the beach or hang around in the small and charming town and enjoy the local food and drinks.

Everyone always talks about how good Byron is and now I can see why. The beach really is a standout and there are so many water based activities that can be done. The whole town just has an excellent vibe and I honestly didn't want to leave. Will definitely have to come back!

Byron Bay has such a peaceful magical quality about it. Beautiful sandy beaches and great restaurants and shops in the main part of town.

First time visiting, I walked up to the lighthouse and looked down to the beach, several 100ft high the views above the sands were amazing, the most easterly point is there, whilst here I saw a group of Dolphins swim by & whales out at sea.

This beach side town hit all the marks with me. It may be June and a little cold but probably the best time to avoid crowds, loved it
