The Best Guide to Byron Bay & the Northern Rivers

Byron and Beyond

Byron and Beyond has long captured the hearts of travellers from around the globe and for many the love affair lasts a lifetime.

From world-renowned beaches to lush hinterland surrounds, Byron and Beyond offers something for just about everyone with an eclectic and laid-back mix of alternative, surfie and trendy culture.

Byron and Beyond covers Byron Bay and the entire Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. Originally known as Cavanbah or ‘meeting place’ by the original Bundjalung people of the area, Byron Bay continues to live up to its traditional heritage with people flocking from everywhere to shop, surf, scuba dive and of course, walk the famous Cape Byron Lighthouse track. Located at Australia’s easterly most point, this walk offers a stunning vista of migrating whales as well as resident dolphins and leopard sharks. Known to many as the Rainbow Region, Byron Bay is home to a thriving local community of musicians and artists and hosts a variety of colourful markets and festivals. The beaches are also popular for a huge range of activities such as surfing, swimming, kite surfing, scuba diving and of course relaxing.
