About Byron Bay

As Australia’s easternmost point, Byron Bay offers a bevy of sightseeing, boutique shopping and beachfront options that make for one of the most laid-back offerings on the Australian mainland. With its prime location just south of the border between NSW and QLD, “Byron” as it’s affectionately known offers a myriad of things to see and do, all while taking in fresh ocean air and having plenty of places to enjoy it – with some of the best beaches in the country.

Byron Bay is a town that has come a long way since its quaint origins as a small hippie town, and now is one of the region’s most popular getaway spots. While it still retains its sense of alternative character, continued development has lead to the creation of an array of modern cafes, restaurants, bars and accommodation to take advantage of the wonderful weather and scenery that the area has to offer.

Perhaps its most famous landmark – the iconic Byron Bay lighthouse – sits atop a clifftop that provides wonderful views of the open ocean, as well as the hang gliders who use its heights as the ideal launching point for some aerial adventures. Easily reachable for Queenslanders just across the border, Byron Bay provides a pleasant, less-crowded alternative to many other beach seaside destinations on Australia’s east coast.

Weather and Climate

Byron Bay's pleasant weather and airy, seaside environment is one of the major reasons travellers are drawn to the region, and as a result many of its experiences are oriented around the sunshine and breezy conditions its coastal location is conducive to. As Australia's easternmost point, Byron's sunrises are the first in mainland Australia to cast their light on the continent each day, while the Bay's sheltered nature makes for a pleasant atmosphere in which adults and kids can take advantage of its wonderful beachfront nearly all year round.
