Lifestyle

This insta-famous destination is one of Australia’s most talked-about (and visited) beachside towns, and rightfully so. Byron Bay is bursting at the seams with eateries, shopfronts, markets and festivals that promote the easy-going boho lifestyle that this region is renowned for. 

Byron’s lush subtropical climate is an outdoor lover’s dream. The hinterland’s rolling hills and rainforests are just begging to be explored, and the dramatic coastline is a prime spot for surfing, diving and whale-watching. Coastal walks are in abundance, some will take you up to the iconic Byron Bay Lighthouse and others through national parkland that gives way to some of the best surf breaks you’ll find in Australia. 

From sun-up, Byron is pulsing with an eclectic mix of on-trend cafés and eateries championing paddock-to-plate ethos, late-night bars and an array of boutiques that are overflowing with lustful homewares and fashion. Plus, there’s the weekly farmers’ market which brings in the region’s freshest farmgate produce. 

Without missing a beat, Byron’s music and arts scene is thriving. The annual events calendar is filled with an array of sell-out festivals, and even on the streets you’ll get your music fix, with roaming buskers and street performers aplenty. Art galleries shine a spotlight on local and international talent, and monthly community markets are a platform for local artisans.   

Being the popular travel destination that it is, adventure sports have etched their way in, in a big way – from mountain biking to sea kayaking to skydiving – and surf schools are in abundance. And although the many holiday homes and boutique guesthouses are a growing presence, they do little to detract from the easy-breezy lifestyle that Byron is renowned for.

Neighbours

A beachside town that was once swarming with surfers, backpackers and peace-loving souls, Byron’s easy-going lifestyle and lush surrounds proved too hard to keep under wraps. Although Byron is still very much an oasis for surfers and backpackers with their humble beach shacks and kitted out combi vans, these days entrepreneurs, city-folk and creatives are all flocking to sample a taste of the laid-back boho lifestyle. And with them, they bring big-city money and stunning waterfront and hinterland abodes.

Area Features

FOODIE HOTSPOT

Thanks in large part to Byron’s lush sub-tropical surrounds, Byron’s on-trend cafes, eateries and restaurants embrace the area’s farm gate produce in a big way. And in a town where anything goes, you’ll find everything from wholefood cafés to storefronts pumping out ocean-fresh fish n’ chips to burger joints.  

SHOPPING

Homewares to fashion to surf stores, the shopping scene in Byron just keeps on outdoing itself. Jonson and surrounding streets are the go-to spots but venture out of Byron to the smaller towns, and you will stumble across little gems, such as Newrybar Merchants and Our Corner Store.

BEACHES

Byron’s coastline is peppered with rockpools and surfing beaches with swells that are permanently etched into local folklore. Main Beach sits at the top end of Jonson Street, but follow the coast around, and you’ll stumble upon legendary surf hotspot, The Pass. Further along beautiful Wategos Beach and Tallow Beach are local haunts. 

COASTAL WALKS

Don your walking shoes and hit the many trails that hug Byron’s coastline – at every turn you will be floored by the stunning views. Especially at Byron Bay Lighthouse, which is swarming with people eager to soak up the panoramic vistas.
