Visit Byron Bay - Best of Byron Bay
Byron Bay is a coastal town located on the north-eastern end of New South Wales, Australia. It is a famous beach town known for its laidback atmosphere. The highlight of the town is its thriving surf culture for which it has gained worldwide popularity. Surfing, scuba diving, whale –watching and relaxing on the beach are the main tourist activities here. The town itself has a vibe of a close knit community that contributes to the development of their beloved town.
Byron bay tourism has always been bustling, as it is a popular destination with both domestic and international tourists. However instead of turning into a touristy commercial town, the locals have strived to maintain the small town charm. The town has much to offer apart from beaches and surf, the nightlife, restaurants, local markets, events, and retail outlets are all perfectly suited for a fun-filled vacation. Byron Bay is also known for several spa and wellness facilities. Other popular activities here are Byron Bay skydiving or camping at the Byron Bay Tourist Village.
The local Arakwal Aboriginal people call the town Cavvanbah, which means meeting place and it certainly lives up to that name. Owing to its proximity to Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney, several Byron Bay tours are conducted from these cities and one can opt for a short getaway. The Byron Visitor Centre, housed in the old Stationmaster’s Cottage in the center of the town, offers free and useful Byron Bay tourist information and assistance.
