“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

If you go to Byron you must visit Cape Byron. Hang gliders cruising overhead, lush bushland & if you're lucky you may spot the odd humpback whale or ten. Beautiful.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Byron Bay as a whole is an interesting place, very hippy and laid back, almost horizontal in most cases. But there is a charm to the place and we enjoyed visiting the whole town. There are a number of things to do in the area but the focus is on taking it easy. Not sure I would want to stay there longer than a week but well worth the visit.

“Spactaculara views - walk can be challenge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

I parked by Clarke's beach and The Pass and walked around to the easterly observation point. My well worn knees found all the steps a challenge but I took them 1 at a time and I'm glad I did. The views at the observation point was amazing, as they were at several points along the way.

“Great Coastal Hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

Cape Byron is a beautiful coastal spot. We walked from Clarkes Beach to the lighthouse and back which was a return trip of nearly 2 hours. We did the walk late in the day which was great as it was cooler, quieter, easier to find a park and there was plenty of land wildlife and birdlife. Must visit spot if you are in the area. You have to be reasonably fit to do the hike and take a camera and plenty of water.
