Byron Bay is a small coastal town located an hours drive south of the Gold Coast. Byron is a favourite holiday destination for many families because of its stunning beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Byron is especially popular with young people with thousands of school leavers flocking there every summer for their annual ‘schoolies’ celebrations.
Without a doubt Byron’s most famous attraction is the Byron Bay lighthouse which is situated on top a small hill which overlooks the town. The lookout at the top offers stunning 360 views of the ocean and surrounding areas. You can get there by car or on foot but if you are considering the later option, be warned, its a steep climb.
The town offers kayaking tours, surfing lessons and deep sea fishing trips for those wanting to get out onto the water. For those keen to keep their feet on dry land their is a wide selection of walking and cycling trails to take advantage of.
