It’s the best place to embrace being a beach bum for a few days, with your only worry being which beach you want to visit that day or how good the surf break is. I promise that once you visit Byron, it will be one of your favorite (or if you’re like me, your ABSOLUTE favorite) spots in Australia.

Speaking of the coastal walk… Byron has the most beautiful coastal views I have ever laid eyes on. Even if you don’t stop for a swim at one of the many beaches, just taking in the views is enough. You can also walk all the way to the lighthouse, the most easterly point in Australia where you can catch both the sunrise and sunset.
