Byron Bay is beautiful, and a must visit for any road tripper heading up Australia's East coast. Gorgeous views abound in this part of the country, so much so you'll be hard pressed not to enjoy your trip.

Byron Bay is stunning. Beautiful beaches with fantastic walks, where you can walk for miles and miles. A must visit. The town itself is a young persons surfer paradise, which you either love or hate. But the Bay is wonderful.

This town is quite large now as it's become very popular and is full of eateries, clothes shops and arty shops. The traffic can be a problem in holiday times but the town has a lovely character, somewhat alternative, and is very friendly and welcoming to visitors. Good surfing beaches and a range of other things to do.

Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing trip to Byron Bay. Stayed in the caravan park, visited the Beach Hotel, each meal was better than the last, exquisite diving and fruitful whale watching. Highly recommend.

Spent the Sunday morning on the beach, it was very hot but a sea breeze kept it comfortable. Chatted to a lovely couple from the Valley while girls went for a swim. Then ,to top it off a pod of Humpback Whales started breaching just offshore. A stunning display!

Had an amazing time here, such a hippie-surfer town! Live music and market shops on the weekend I was there-so much fun! Wish I'd stayed longer. Try out surfing for sure! I was too chicken due to the "stinger season"... however many people do it anyway and have a great time, even first timers! Enjoy!

Byron is a beautiful place! I loved it the first time and stayed a few months the second time. I have to leave soon but I will definitely come back. Awesome small town close to Byron as well for some day trips. Lovely cafes, shops, people.. it's not cheap but just enjoy your time and get the byron lifestyle ☺️

Whenever life gets stressful, I come here for a weekend. In spite of its commercialisation, Bryon has retained its friendly, hippy culture. All ages and cultures are welcome here.

We visited Byron Bay on our way to the goldcoast. We visited the lighthouse and drove around town. The center is full of bars and restaurants but all a bit alternative and especially for backpackers.

My daughter and I decided to have a 3 night stay in Byron Bay. My daughter works in Melbourne an I live in New Zealand. I flew to the Gold Coast to meet her. We hired a car and drove 35 minutes to Byron Bay. A really beautiful spot to relax. Weather superb and shopping even better. We certainly enjoyed... More
