Byron Bay is a very laid back beachside town in the northeastern corner of New South Whales. It has gained great popularity for activities on land, in the air, and in the water. It is a place that will feel unique to you and largely untouched by imposing corporate entities as chain hotels are uncommon there.
You will come across Byron Bay on a number of offered East Coast tours. This could be one of the 4 Day or 16 Day Safaris. If the beautiful scenery isn't what you enjoy the most, it will be the wide range of available activities or the rich history that is part of Byron Bay's story. Byron Bay was named after John Byron, the Royal Navy Officer.
The famous lighthouse is one of the main stops you will make on your guided tour. Cape Byron Light has been fully operational since 1901 and attracts over 500,000 visitors each year, of which many enjoy the site for whale watching.
If you take interest to the water, then you will want to jump right in when visiting Byron Bay. The area got its place on the map as a tourist destination when longboard surfers arrived in the 1960s due to the breaks in the waves at points such as The Pass, Wategos, and Cosy Corner. Surfing surely isn't the only way to experience Byron Bay as temperate and tropical waters come to an intersection at Byron Bay, providing an inviting feel for snorkeling and scuba diving.
On land you can enjoy taking a hike to explore the magnificent sights that Byron Bay has to offer. You can also enjoy the picturesque surroundings from above by skydiving if that fits into your adventurous agenda.
No matter what kind of way you plan to spend your time at Byron Bay, you will not be disappointed and will be likely left wishing you had more time there. Contact us to find out more about this excellent travel destination.
