Byron Bay is a pretty magical spot. It’s the most easterly point of the Australian mainland and is the perfect combination of beach, hinterland, rainforest, country town and rolling hills. We thought we’d do a little exploring and bring you a little guide for a lazy Thursday autumn afternoon.
Stumble across a local record fair held to one of the quaintest town halls we’ve ever seen.
Flick through album after album until your eyes go fuzzy.
Settle for some 80’s punk surf.
Hop in the car, it’s time to find a beer.
Make your way to a cute old country pub.
Order a local brew.
…and a feed.
With a full belly, drive through the endless grassy fields, over windy roads and past epic views.
See if you can spot the lighthouse and get a bird’s eye view of the bay.
Take a photo.
Park the car and load those tipples into an esky.
Soon you’ll find a narrow little path, it looks pretty promising.
After a bit of walking, the ocean will peek through the foliage.
With any luck, the beach will be all yours, not another soul in sight.
Find a spot to set up, the sun is slowly setting and you’ve just got enough time to watch the dusk roll in.
Take in the view, get a little salt on your cheeks and get your toes nice and sandy.
