living in Byron Bay?

I have the opportunity to move from the USA to Australia and work for 1-2 years. I love the beach and Byron Bay is beautiful. Would this be a nice place to live for a couple years?

Depends where you are planning to work. Employment opportunities are quite limited around Byron Bay.

If you have a job lined up it would be wonderful especially if you enjoy the beaches and a laid back hippy beachside village. As B/Bum mentioned there is limited employment in this region.

Thanks for your response. What are some other nice beach towns along the east coast to spend a couple years in? I'm basically looking for good beach, good weather, a nice town or small city with good hiking/biking, and a nice place to raise a child.
