About the Byron Bay region

From World Heritage rainforest to the sparkling beaches, the Byron Bay region on the North Coast of NSW is full of natural wonders. The area is also famous for its surf culture, alternative philosophies, organic food and outdoor adventures.

Byron Bay's natural attractions are impeccable; humpback whales cruise past the headland, dolphins frolic in the bay, and storms create rainbows on the mountains. With the ocean as a vast blue canvas, watch hang-gliders ride thermals above the lighthouse.

Rich soils and sustainable farming practices help create enviable fresh produce. Savour the delicious local produce in the area’s restaurants, cafés and markets. The easy-going towns of Brunswick Heads, Bangalow and Mullumbimby, combine the casual vibe of coastal retreats with a touch of city style.

For bird’s-eye views of the mountains, rainforest and coast, enjoy a ride in a hot-air balloon with Byron Bay Ballooning. Thrill-seekers can jump from an aircraft with Skydive Byron Bay.

Kayaking, snorkelling and diving are popular, too. You can paddle close to dolphins and whales during whale-watching season with the likes of Cape Byron Kayaks and Go Sea Kayak Byron Bay.

Explore the town of Ballina, located at the mouth of the Richmond River and home of the Big Prawn, one of Australia’s iconic ‘big things’. At Lennox Head, a seaside village between Ballina and Byron Bay, is the world-famous surf break Lennox Point.

You'll find plenty of places to stay in Byron Bay, from elegant hotels and resorts to hostels and camping grounds. Airlines fly from Sydney to Ballina airport. Bus tours depart Sydney and drive along the Legendary Pacific Coast touring route to Byron Bay.
