Byron Bay at a Glance

Byron Bay is the nucleus of the Byron Shire, and is located about 600 kilometres north of Sydney and 140 kilometres south of Brisbane. Nestled on the shores of a stunning smooth bay, the town has a population of 9000 which swells during busy tourist months. The people there are renowned for thier relaxed and laid back attitude, and it has become something of a bohemian haven for artists, musicians and writers, all of which adds to Byron's appeal. Inland there are some amazing National Parks to balance out the attractions of the coastline, meaning a visit to these parts will be full and exciting! A hirecar from Rent New Cars is the perfect way to explore this quaint town and its lush surrounds.

Ideas for Visitors to Byron
  1. The whole concept of adventure sports has taken off in Byron Bay. Start off sublime and easy and hire a canoe to go paddling through the bay. You might even bump into some dolphins. At the other end of the spectrum is sky diving, only for the very brave! The rush as you fall and the view of the coastline make it all worthwhile.
  2. Byron Bay is watched over by a large lighthouse, built on the top of the headland that marks the most easterly point of the country. A drive up here rewards you with stunning views of the ocean and the coastline, and you can see turtles, dolphins, and if the season is right, whales, swimming in the waters below.
  3. Inland of Byron there are some impressive National Parks. The most popular is probably Mt Warning National Park, home to the extinct volcano Mt Warning. Draped in thick rainforest and inhabited by plenty of wildlife, this tall mountain will amaze visitors with its panoramic views and rugged slopes.
  4. In the centre of the bay the rugged peaks of Julian Rocks can be seen protruding above the water. These rocks are one of the top dive sites in the country, and are home to a large amount of marine life including the endangered Grey Nurse Shark. Its the perfect place for an introductory scuba course.
  5. Byron Bay is very representative of Australian culture, whether it be indigenous, sports, or surfing. Why not make the most of this and take some didgeridoo lessons, or learn how to throw a boomerang. Surf lessons are also available in the bay, where the gentle swell is perfect for beginners.
