Welcome to Byron Bay

City description  

The Australia of Byron Bay, in the state of New South Wales, is a veritable sea of green and gold.

The green comes from its lush vegetation that you'll discover as you walk along the paths of the Pacific Coast Touring Route or the Rainforest Way and all its foliage. The gold is provided by the sandy beaches, like Tallow Beach and Cosy Corner, and the sunlight glistening on the surf. These natural jewels you will be able to appreciate as you climb the steps of Cape Byron Lighthouse with its view over the ocean and the rocks plunging into the water. A destination blessed by the gods, with its kayak rides among the dolphins and its marine reserve where you'll encounter whales and graceful stingrays, but which still retains a local charm. Tribes of surfers aboard their Volkswagen campers will prove this to you. With its colorful houses, its relaxing atmosphere thanks to the limited number of cars on the road and its New Age communities, Byron Bay serves as the all-Australian village. A region well and truly protected by its inhabitants who preserve local trade against all odds, especially in the markets, it's an absolute must-visit place.


It provides a real opportunity to get away from it all, with its authenticity and nature located just one and a half hours from Brisbane. Gourmet visitors won't be disappointed either, with its myriad of restaurants and cocktails bars next to the sea. Make sure you go to Rae's Fish Cafe, for example, where you can enjoy a fish, simply baked in the oven or a platter of sashimi. The view over the ocean and Wategos beach, framed by lush vegetation, is quite simply divine.
