Byron Bay Travel Guide

Byron Bay is small town on the north coast of New South Wales with a population of just 9000. It’s a haven for backpackers and a great destination for anyone who loves the outdoors. 

Byron Bay’s beaches are among its main attractions. The miles of unspoiled coast make the ideal base for walking, swimming, scuba diving, kayaking and even yoga. King’s Beach is one of the most frequented nudist beaches in Australia, and Broken Head Beach has a beautiful nature reserve. Cape Byron lighthouse, found on Australia’s most easterly point at Little Watego beach, is popular with tourists wanting to watch the turtles and dolphins.

Byron Bay’s parks also make lovely locations for enjoying the natural habitat. Take a peaceful cliff-top walk at Arakwal National Park or visit the subtropical rainforests of Moobal National Park.  

Another good reason to visit Byron Bay is its lively markets. The most popular are Byron Bay Markets, Chanoon Markers and Bungalow Markets, where you’ll be able to buy a whole host of arts and crafts wares. Children will delight in having their faces painted, and you can enjoy the experience of drinking fresh sugar cane juice, squeezed while you watch.  

Crystal Castle makes for a fascinating day out with its impressive views and enchanting crystal gallery. Macadamia Castle is also well worth a visit, especially if you’ve got kids, as they’ll love the merry go round, mini golf and petting the animals in the animal park.
