Byron Bay surf style
Cape Byron and its famous lighthouse is as far east as you can walk in mainland Australia.
Your next step will see you swimming with the surfers 200 metres below, unless that is, you are indulging in a tandem hang gliding session!
The pinup poster child of the region, nonstop growth in tourism infrastructure has made it possible for Byron Bay accommodation and tour operators to provide “surf to rainforest” experiences to suit all budgets.
There are numerous types of lodgings to choose from including luxury resorts, luxury homes, family resorts, B&Bs, motels, hotels, backpacker hostels, guesthouses, holiday homes, and over a dozen caravan and camping parks.
Cafes, bistros and restaurants abound. The retail therapy is mind boggling, with many unique retail outlets supporting the artisans and crafts people of the district.
For shopaholics, a visit to the Byron Arts and Industrial Estate is a must, showcasing the creative, unique and stylish fashions, arts and crafts inspried by the natural environment.
Cape Byron State Conservation Area
Attractions include the popular Cape Byron State Conservation Area and Lighthouse precinct reserve on the headland, for a selfie at sunrise, and Julian Rocks Marine Reserve for scuba diving and snorkelling with dolphins and sharks.
The scenery here is awesome! So are the waves. But when you get water logged, sun burnt and bored with whales and dolphins, the cool shade of the “Big Scrub” remnant rainforests and nature reserves are waiting to be discovered.
