It was a bit cold and windy the day we went but great views from the lighthouse and a short walk to the most easterly point of Australia

Byron Bay is amazing, a great place to relax. The coastal walks are fantastic, you can walk for ours. Make sure you go whale watching…a great experience. Lots of lovely food places. Byron is a little bit a hippie town. You will meet lots of backpackers too. Take a car and drive inland. You will see a beautiful nature side... More

We were treated to amazing views of 2 juvenile humpback whales, a pod of dolphins and green turtles, close to shore. Further out we saw some huge humpbacks playing and blowing - just for fun! The walk around the lighthouse to the headland was tidy and well designed. Well worth a visit.

If you aren't interested in the beaches, surfing, shopping in overpriced shops then it wouldn't be the worst thing to miss. The Lighthouse however has wonderfull views. There are a lot of other towns such as Lennox Head or Ballina which aren't as busy but offer the same thing (minus the lighthouse) and for a little cheaper.

Dear Byron Bay, I used to love you, I really did. Each year, I would spend two whole weeks with you, enjoying your beaches and laid back atmosphere. I would look forward to our time together, counting down the weeks, days, and hours until we would meet again. And you never let me down. You were my beautiful Byron Bay,... More

Having had it recommended by 2 unconnected people we booked ourselves on a shuttle bus for a day at the beach. The bus picks up promptly at stop 125 Roma St Transit Centre (opposite the police station) which was a 10 minute walk from our hotel Ibis on Turbot St. The bus driver was a little on the surly side...
