DOWN BY THE BAY
Byron Bay is a popular holiday town in the state of New South Wales that offers much to enjoy on the coast and neighbouring hinterland: ■ Known for its stunning beaches, awesome surf and top-notch snorkelling and scuba-diving sites, there’s no shortage of aqua activities to enjoy in order to encounter Australian marine life. ■ Cape Byron State Conservation Park sits on a headland where you can enjoy a delightful walk up to the Cape Byron Lighthouse that marks the most easterly point in Australia. ■ From June to November, humpback whales can be spotted from the Captain Cook Lookout. Lush rainforests, mountains, waterfalls and local wildlife offer a stark contrast to the kilometres of sandy beach coastline in this impressive region– both vistas equally spectacular.
