Byron Bay

Named after Lord Byron's grandfather, Byron Bay is not only famous as the easternmost point of Australia, but even more so as one of the liveliest vacation spots in the country.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Lennox Head Beach and Belongil Beach. Shop till you drop at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Lone Goat Gallery. Go for a jaunt from Byron Bay to Ballina to see Big Prawn about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: hike along Cape Byron Walking Track, explore the galleries of Hammer and Hand Byron Bay Jewellery and Metal Collective, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
