Byron Bay

(4.2/5 based on 8,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, historic sites, trails
Named after Lord Byron's grandfather, Byron Bay is not only famous as the easternmost point of Australia, but even more so as one of the liveliest vacation spots in the country. Surrounded by dense forests and sporting long sandy beaches, the town exudes a laid-back atmosphere favored by younger travelers, artists, and nature lovers. Surfing ranks among the top things to do at Byron Bay, and each year hundreds come here to catch the perfect wave. The town's population of around 5,000 increases exponentially at high season, especially during its numerous festivals. Probably the busiest and the rowdiest period in Byron Bay is between late November and mid-December, when high school graduates flock to the town during "schoolies week." When using our Australia trip itinerary builder to make an itinerary online, Byron Bay holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Byron Bay

Popular with everyone from backpackers and surfers to the rich and famous, Byron Bay features accommodations for a range of tastes and budgets.
