Byron bay accomodation during schoolies

My husband and I have booked a week in byron bay to catch up with our son, I have just realised we will be there for schoolies. Can anyone reccomend accomodation that will be quiet at night but not to far from the centre, and not too expensive ? Many thanks

I'll let the local experts answer the question properly but it almost sounds like you are seeking the holy grail.

Everything is expensive in Byro, and during Schoolies it will be busier than usual.

Have you considered Ballina or Yamba instead?

Cheers

Places in BB either allow schoolies groups (with big bonds and lots of rules) or don't allow them at all. You need to find places without them but BB is not cheap in December.

I'd just take your son somewhere else for the week, Yamba, Ballina as suggested above or maybe Burleigh Heads, even Broadbeach south of Surfers Paradise. Will probably depend on what you can get that's suitable in your price range.

All the best.

Just to say thanks to all for the advice, we had a wonderful week, we stayed at Aabis of Byron (fabulous), and were not affected by schoolies at all. We loved Byron Bay
