Byron Bay

Over the years, with surfers in the 60's, hippies in the 70's, backpackers in the 80's, and everybody since, Byron Bay has gained a reputation of having a relaxed and often alternative atmosphere. Its atmosphere coupled with its many beaches, Julian Rocks marine reserve, Cape Byron lighthouse, unspoiled hinterland, and nearby world heritage listed national parks has helped cement Byron Bay as a world renowned place to visit.

The magical mix of residents, with their strong and varied points of view, has helped shape the Byron Bay we all love today. You won't find any high rise buildings or fast food giants, instead you are free to choose between a wide variety of places to stay, and get to enjoy an interesting mix of restaurants and cafes - many boasting award winning chefs.
