Do & See
Byron Bay is a melting pot of surf culture, alternative philosophies and hedonistic indulgence - the perfect place to get back in touch with nature and your inner wild child. Get active, be it surfing, kayaking, fishing, sailing or just enjoying a swim at the beach. Express yourself with arts and hippie fashions or dance the day away at a festival. Or you can make like a local and just chill out. From the lush hinterland to the sparkling beaches on the coast, the region is full of natural wonders: humpback whales cruise past the headland, tropical storms create rainbows over the mountains, and hang-gliders ride the thermals above the lighthouse. There are plenty of tours and activities to take it all in. Discover more beauty by simply exploring. The laid-back town of Brunswick Heads, plus the arts-loving villages of Bangalow and Mullumbimby, combine the casual vibe of coastal retreats with a touch of city style.
