Your experience here can be whatever you choose to make it, there is something for everyone.

I want to share with you the best bits of Byron Bay, so that if you are only here for a few days, weeks or choose to stay forever, you love every minute of it!

Coastal Walk, Byron Bay Lighthouse

Byron Bay 1Byron Bay 1

For the ultimate Salty experience, get up early & experience a sunrise Lighthouse walk (or as the locals call it, the ‘Lighty’). As you wind your way to the top, you’ll pass hidden coves & walk through some pretty dense, protected rainforest.

I would recommend a stop at ‘little Wategos’, where you can stand at the most Easterly Point of mainland Australia. From this angle you can look up at the towering cliff face which will be your next challenge! Have a dip, breathe, then head up to the lighthouse for some equally mesmerizing views of of the Bay.

The Markets – Byron Bay, Bangalow, Mullumbimby

This is where the freshest local product can be found.

The farmers are beautiful & more than happy to talk through their harvesting procedures & the love, nurturing & perseverance it takes to make delicious organic food appear on our plates.

I am incredibly passionate about being part of the positive, ethical & sustainable food movement that is so present in the Far North Coast of NSW. The more we can be involved & understand where our food comes from, the more we can perpetuate the cycle.

If you are hungry for freshly baked pastries, hand picked fruit & veg, local coffee or want to pick up some goodies for a picnic, GO, I promise you wont be disappointed!

Visit Stone & Wood Brewery

Visit with a group, or go alone. You’ll love it.

Be sure to check the Byron Bazaar for whats on in & around town too. Stone & Wood open their doors every now & then for special events, gigs & feasts.  If you are around, definitely prioritise this!

 

Do something Adventurous!!!

…. like ballooning, skydiving or fly high over the coast in a helicopter.

Skydiving:

I can’t recommend Byron Bay Skydiving enough. They keep you laughing & make sure you don’t evaporate from chronic anxiety! I personally was so scared – I hate being on commercial planes, let alone getting ready to jump out of one.

You take off in a teeny tiny plane from Tyagarah airport, sawing above the clouds with the most incredible aerial view over the coast (it’s actually worth it just for this).

For me skydiving was all about making myself proud! And that I did. I was the first out of the plane & watched as my family all landed in behind me. What an epic experience!!

Ballooning: 

Fancy hovering over the Byron Bay Hinterland or tracing the glittering coastline in a hot air balloon? Byron Bay Ballooning is your guy.
