Byron Bay Sightseeing

Byron Bay offers a choice of must-see natural sightseeing attractions for active couples enjoying a honeymoon or romantic getaway, including the following…

Cape Byron Walking Track

Enjoy a superb 5km coastal walk around Australia’s easternmost mainland. The track begins east of the town of Byron Bay on Lighthouse Road and circles the peninsula, taking you high above the coast for a sensational view of pristine beaches.

In the distance spot the dramatic peak of Mount Warning, part of the World Heritage-listed Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves of Australia.

Along the way watch for humpback whales – frequently seen from the headland on their annual migration along the coast from May to November, take a dip in the waves at sheltered Watego’s Beach and take a close-up look at the Heritage-listed lighthouse and lighthouse keeper’s cottage at Cape Byron.

Cape Byron Headland Reserve

Explore the scenic sea cliffs, rare coastal vegetation and spectacular beaches on foot along a walking track that offers spectacular views of both the surrounding marine park and the hinterland.

Climb to the Cape Byron Lighthouse and light-keepers cottages, built in 1901 and perched 94m above sea level on the crest of the windswept headland.

Take the tour to get an insight into what life might have been like in the days of the lighthouse keepers and enjoy the panoramic views of the coast from the most easterly point of Australia.

Byron Bay Markets

Hunt for bargains at one of the best craft markets on the north coast of New South Wales. Be entertained by buskers performing original songs and street performers miming or juggling.

Buddha Gardens Day Spa

Indulge in a sanctuary of flowing waters and peaceful ambience. Don’t miss the Orchid Room, which features a spa bath set in natural rock, a waterfall, an open air shower and a Balinese day bed.

Broken Head Nature Reserve

Explore the 75ha of sub-tropical rainforest that sweeps down to secluded beaches.

Follow the walking trail from Seven Mile Beach through the rainforest and along the dramatic cliff top track from Broken Head Caravan Park to Kings Beach.

Along the way spot a variety of bird life in the reserve or cast your line for bream, mulloway and tailor.

Julian Rocks Aquatic Reserve

Dive or snorkel the 80ha of aquatic reserve that is home to many species of tropical and temperate fish as well as a variety of birds.

Spot gulls, terns, tattlers, cormorants and plovers. Get there at sunset for a spectacular sight of seabirds returning to the rocks – a great opportunity for the photographer or the romantic couple.
