Enjoy your free guide to Byron Bay

Byron Bay is a coastal town located on the far-north coast of NSW, Australia. Home to Australia's most easterly point and the iconic Cape Byron lighthouse, the region is known for its spectacular beaches, unique shopping and dining experiences, world-class festivals, and vibrant community spirit. Beyond the township of Byron Bay, the region includes many seaside villages, quaint hinterland towns, and large regional centres, all with their own unique character.

With travel restrictions lifted, Byron opens for holidays on 1 June

COVID-19 update: NSW residents will be able to take a holiday anywhere in NSW with intra-state travel restrictions to be lifted from Monday 1 June, 2020. Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Deputy Premier John Barilaro said NSW citizens will be able take recreational trips across NSW, as long as they maintain social distancing and good hygiene.

Experience Byron Bay your way

Explore the region's beaches by kayak, on horseback, by taking surf lessons, or whale watching. Get a birds-eye-view of the mountains and coastal landscape by balloon, or cross sky-diving off your bucket list. Shop local designers and producers at the community markets, be the first in Australia to watch the sunrise, or treat yourself to an indulgent day at the spa. Hike to the iconic lighthouse, people-watch with a cup of coffee, or discover the local art scene at one of Byron's galleries or live music venues.
