This little slice of bohemian paradise is a backpackers dream. Chill wouldn’t come close to describing the laid back, free loving, ever zen Byron lifestyle. Byron isn’t just a top destination; it is THE destination. Rich in surf culture this town embodies the relaxed, laid back, ever free Australian dream. Few towns can be described as having an aurora, especially one as thick and raw as Byron’s, so don’t just spend a day here, spend a week.
Located at the most easterly point of Australia’s coastline, Byron is a surfer’s playground. Some of the best surfing in Australia is done here, so make sure you try your hand during your stay. There are plenty of other activities to part-take in the blue waters of Byron, but we specifically suggest stand up paddle boarding or kayaking. The marine animals are not shy in Byron, so you’ll most likely end up paddling alongside a curious turtle or a pod of playful dolphins.
Byron is an experience within an experience. A town that will quite literally cleanse you.
