The hippy culture of Byron is still mildly visible but mostly overrun by the young tourists and backpackers. Camper vans are abundant, and with a wide easy surf break there is surf for all levels from The Pass to past Belongil. Byron is mostly pet friendly with pooches allowed in many cafes. Belongil beach is pooch heaven from dawn to... More

Nice small sea side town That's very busy during summer time with the back packers and local surfers, with beach big enough that you can get away from the crowds to do your own thing :)

It is very small but very busy place. You will find lots of camping parks around but they might be booked out during the season.

Must see! The beach is spectacular. We only spent 3 days there, but will be back. Everything is holiday, relaxed and easy.

This place is unique, a lot more commercialised than it used to be. But the pub is probably the nicest place to eat there great live music almost all the time and the view to the water is fantastic. Just be careful as you have to pay for parking just about everywhere in the town centre.

It's one of those places that you got to go visit in a lifetime. It's alive with cool people, waves crashing and amazing nature. A total beach culture.

We visited Byron for the first time with our family and loved every minute...the town has a great atmosphere with music being played in most corners and a great atmosphere from open cafes and restaurants. The beach is cool and very close to the shops and cafes. This is a seriously great and very relaxed place.
