Byron Bay is renowned for its laidback, bohemian lifestyle that attracts visitors (and celebrities) from around the world. Stay in the heart of downtown Byron for easy access to independent shops, cafés and restaurants focusing on fresh, local produce and handicrafts. Or, head down towards the lighthouse for a more mellow holiday among the trees and just steps from the beach.
Byron is the most easterly point in Australia, you can be among the first people in the world to welcome the new day with the sunrise over the ocean. Since you’re awake, you can head up to The Pass for a morning surf with the locals. If you’re lucky, you might even spot local celeb, Chris Hemsworth!
