Head Up To The Lighthouse

This is the lighthouse monument at Byron Bay. I have read that it is the most easterly point on the mainliand of Austrlalia.
There is a great museum about the lighthouse keepers from Australia up here. As well, this vantage point affords a view that is amazing of beaches on both sides of the point.
Sometimes there are paragliders launching from the top of the hill as well.
This place is worth seeing and it is free except for the parking right by the museum. […]

Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve

It’s a great spot to distance yourself from people and find that virtually deserted bit of beach. Although only on the other bank of the river, there is no direct access from Brunswick Heads itself (other than by private boat). Therefore, access involves driving out onto the Pacific Highway, crossing the river and then driving back along the northern banks of the river, the ‘suburbs’ of New Brighton and finally a short drive along an untarmac’ed road (in good condition though). Takes about 20-30 minutes. […]

Walk Beautiful Byron Bay Beach

I went for an early morning walk on the beach but experienced some unexpected rough weather which revealed a different aspect to the normal tourist expectation. There had been a storm during the night and I caught the tail end, dark sky, squalls and a rough sea. However I enjoyed my walk on the beachfront and remembered a previous walk several years earlier when the sun shone. […]

Whale Watching

Byron Bay is a perfect place for a spot of whale watching. Humpback whales begin their annual migration in May/June when they head north to warmer waters to breed. They return south around September/October when they often come into the Bay and breach and frolic with their calves. A truly amazing sight. […]

Splendour In The Grass

Splendour in the Grass is unquestionably a one-of-a-kind festival on the Australian music circuit, spread out over two days and located in scenic Byron Bay.

In spite of the increased popularity with bigger crowds every year, it doesn’t seem to detract from the festival’s general joyful-happy-go-lucky atmosphere.

If you get the opportunity to make the journey to Byron Bay for Splendour in the Grass, I strongly recommend you take the trip. […]

Sea-Kayak With The Dolphins

Byron Bay Sea Kayaks run multiple trips per day during the peak summer season (November – February) and they cost around $60 per person. You will then meet up at Clarks Beach and get kitted out in life vests, helmets and paddles and will take the boats down to the beach to load. The trip is about 4 hours and takes you at a leisurely pace out past the Pass where you are likely to see Dolphins (we only saw them about 100m away since they were busy hearding a school of pilchards in for a snack and weren’t interested in playing with Kayakers!). Once around the Passs you paddle to Little Wategos for a snack and drink with time for a little walk up to the lookouts etc before heading back onto the boats for the paddle back to the Pass. […]

Visit the Sunday Markets

The markets were on at Byron when we went and the stalls are wide and varied from local producers selling honey, passionfruit, bananas, vegetables etc to art and craft stalls with some pretty innovative pieces, to the ‘white elephant’ jumble stalls and the “string-your-own-beads” places for the kids and kids-at -heart! […]

Wategos Beach

Wategos Beach sits in between the main stretch of Byron Bay and the Lighthouse and is a great beach for surfing. At the moment the main part of Byron Bay has lost a bit if sand (due to the natural shifting of sand around the coastal areas) and at low tide you have to walk quite a way out to find any good waves. […]
