I would like to visit Byron Bay, but it looks like the timing might not make it worth it... We'd be there either the day before or the first day of the blues festival. I'd love to go, but it's seeming impossible to find reasonable accommodation in our price range (under $200). I'm wondering if we should avoid Byron all together.
Unfortunately there's not flexibility in our schedule to get there earlier or wait until later. We'd be coming through Byron either Wednesday, March 31 or Thursday, April 1st.
The rest of our trip will afford us the opportunity to visit Sydney, Port Stephens, Port Macquarie, Southwest Rocks, Coffs Harbor, Yamba (maybe) and Noosa Heads. Is Byron Bay a place we must stop no matter how busy and overpriced?
