Enjoy the Sunsets
The sunset in Byron is one of the best I’ve seen. At the end of Main Beach closest to the lighthouse, Fisherman’s Lookout is one of the best places to take in sunset with panoramic views across the bay. It’s also a popular surf spot which can make for some great photos.
Walk to Cape Byron Lighthouse
No trip to Byron Bay is complete without a visit to Continental Australia’s most easterly point. It is an easy walk from town with a path that runs mostly parallel to the beach. If you are in a rush you can easily do the track in two hours, but give yourself some more time to relax and enjoy the sights along the way.
For a real Aussie experience, head down to Main Beach and surf with the locals. Most accommodation will have boards for hire (some offer them for free). For the newbies, there are plenty of options for group or private lessons, although they can be expensive.
Bike to Broken Head
Rent a bike from your accommodation and make the easy 6km journey from town out to Suffolk Park. Here you can take a walk along Tallows Beach and the 1.6km Three Sisters track on Broken Head. The short cliff side walk offers stunning views and leads to a secluded beach, a great way to spend half a day!
Find Happy Hour
Drinking in Australia can be expensive. Seek out happy hour specials and your wallet will thank you. If you’re up for the backpacker crowd, Cheeky Monkeys is the place to be with $4 pints during happy hour. Ask at your accommodation and I’m sure they’ll be able to point you towards the cheapest beverage of your choosing.
