This beautiful, laidback town in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales is very popular, attracting almost two million visitors each year. During peak times, even nearby towns such as Lismore and Ballina will be booked out.

The Aboriginal people called this area “Cavvanba”, meaning “meeting place”, but when Captain James Cook sailed along in 1770 he named it after John Byron, circumnavigator of the world and, later on, grandfather of the poet, Lord Byron. The literary connection lives on in Byron Bay’s street names. When the town was set out in the 19th century, the streets were named after poets. There’s Keats Street, Marvell Street, Milton Street, Dryden Street and Scott Street, among others

The possibilities in Byron Bay are endless, from diving to hiking to even whale watching between June and November and dolphin watching all year round. Byron Bay offers a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, but it does have a definite ritzy side. However, one of the best things is free – taking to the Cape Byron Walking Track to see the sun rise. Cape Byron is the first part of Australia to feel the sun’s rays each morning.
