Always something to do at Byron! The nightlife is fairly dingy but I admire the silent discos they have on the beach. Byron is never dull!

The beach, the town, the outer lying areas - always good to visit! Peaceful, relaxed and beautiful :)

Loved the low key, low rise, with hardly any ugly advertising. I really like the small boutique businesses and cafes. Best coffee any where, in a few places. I did not like the vibe in the town later in the PM. -- Angry drunks, loud and aggressive.

I can't believe it's taken us so long to get to Byron. It would have to be the most pristine of Australia's beaches... But mixed with an eclectic culture of arts, crafts, food and entertainment... This would have to be my favourite Australian holiday!!! We can't wait to go back...

Interesting place to stay plenty of accomodation and eateries. Stayed in a holiday park but would go up market next time closer to the centre of town. Would stay longer next time.

For a town so full of tourists pumping money into the Bryon Bay community it is amazing how badly the traffic and pedestrians are manged (or not managed). Surely pedestrian crossing across all the major intersections wouldn't kill the council budget. Parking is seriously expensive at $4 an hour so why not use these funds to fix the roads around...
