UPDATED 22 November 2020 (no change as of 2 Dec)
Things will be COVID different on New Years Eve in Byron Bay this year. Falls Festival has been cancelled, the Byron Community Centre is NOT hosting their Soul Street - street party, there haven't been any announcements from the pubs, and we haven't had any official news from Byron Council.
If you are a foodie, you are in luck as there are a number of New Years Eve dinner events in and around Byron Bay. CLICK HERE to learn more.
Limited accommodation is still available over New Years. I've compiled this list based on my own search Saturday afternoon 21 November, things may change with last minute cancellations &/or additional inventory being added to the online travel agents. CLICK HERE to learn more.
