BY­RON BAY IN A DAY

IT’S BOTH A CUL­TURAL HUB AND A PLAY­GROUND OF NAT­U­RAL WON­DER, AND JUST A SHORT DRIVE FROM THE GOLDIE. THE LAID-BACK MECCA THAT IS BY­RON BAY IS THE JEWEL OF THE NORTH­ERN NEW SOUTH WALES COAST. OH, AND IT’S HOME TO A HOL­LY­WOOD CELEBRITY OR TWO!

BITES

One of By­ron’s most loved eater­ies is The Pass Cafe. Sit­u­ated in Arak­wal Na­tional Park and over­look­ing the Pass Beach and surf break, the staff here serve up food that’s even bet­ter than the view. The di­verse menu boasts ev­ery­thing from ba­nana and toasted coconut pan­cakes to le­mon pep­per bar­ra­mundi fil­let, and just about ev­ery­thing in be­tween. En­joy a long break­fast or lunch here while tak­ing in the scenery, or sim­ply grab a cup of qual­ity cof­fee to go. The Farm By­ron Bay is an­other must-do. Think rolling acres of green work­ing farm­land, a menagerie of farm an­i­mals to watch and en­joy, and food worth driv­ing in­ter­state for! Eat at Three Blue Ducks or or­der a pic­nic ham­per to en­joy on your cho­sen patch of cool grass un­der one of the invit­ing shady trees. And don’t for­get to grab an ar­ti­san loaf from The Bread So­cial and some sus­tain­ably pro­duced lo­cal pantry goods on your way home.

SIGHTS

Cape By­ron Light­house is perched on the Aus­tralian main­land’s east­ern-most point. The out­crop is a great place for a hike, while the light­house it­self is steeped in his­tory – it’s also Aus­tralia’s most pow­er­ful light­house! If you time your visit well, the walk­ing track is a great lo­ca­tion to watch mi­grat­ing whales right now! They be hang­ing around By­ron Bay be­tween June and Oc­to­ber each year. Re­mem­ber, a long morn­ing walk is best en­joyed with a big break­fast wait­ing at the end…

SHOP­PING DE­LIGHTS

The unique bou­tiques dot­ted along By­ron Bay’s main streets will keep your re­tail ther­apy un­der con­trol for hours – days, even! For the fash­ion­ista, Spell By­ron Bay is def­i­nitely not one to miss. The dreamy col­lec­tion of Bo­hemian-in­spired cloth­ing truly em­bod­ies the By­ron life­style, and float­ing around in one of their dresses will have you feel­ing like you’re on sum­mer hol­i­days long af­ter you’ve re­turned home. They also stock chil­dren’s clothes, mean­ing your Christ­mas and birth­day presents for the grandies are sorted.
