Introducing Byron Bay

Byron Bay offers a range of adventure activities, from coastal walks, kayaking, snorkelling and diving to skydiving and hot-air ballooning.

Mix with the locals and discover some of the surf culture, alternative philosophies and hedonistic indulgences that make Byron so unique.

Whether it’s strolling hand-in-hand along idyllic Clarkes Beach, sunbathing at little Watego’s Beach or enjoying a long romantic dinner at a choice of great restaurants, Byron Bay offers a fabulous honeymoon experience.

Make the pilgrimage to surf the legendary right-hand point break at Lennox Head – the ‘surf capital of the far north coast’. While there, stroll the seven miles of pristine beach at Seven Mile Beach and watch the hang-gliders take off from Pat Morton Lookout.

From nearby Ballina, stroll along the forest boardwalk of the Victoria Park Nature Reserve, take a cruise along the Richmond River or paddle a kayak across the estuarine wetlands.
