🌺 Byron Bay Australia 🌺

situated on the eastern shores of the Pacific.

Byron Bay is a picturesque seaside town approximately 770 kilometers north of Sydney, and just 165 kilometers south of Brisbane. This is a very popular location for both Australian’s and visitors, traveling to this destination from across the 🌎 globe.

Our plan was to spend 2 nights here and then continue on to; Gold Coast. We could have easily spent a few more days, enjoying the sites and the beautiful stretch of beach in Byron Bay.

We chose to 🛫 fly from Sydney to Byron Bay, because of our time constraints. It was fast, easy and surprisingly, very affordable!

You also have the option of 🚍 bus transportation or taking the 🚂 train, but will take you much longer, depending on how much time you have and your budget. Our travel agent back in Canada, suggested flying as the best alternative, to that of the train.

Australia’s Eastern Most Point

Byron Bay not only has beautiful beaches to enjoy surrounded by lush rain forests, it is also the most {eastern point} of Australia.

The ⚓ Cape Byron Lighthouse and State Conservation Area are located here as well, that are definitely worth visiting.

“You simply have to visit Cape Byron Lighthouse when you’re in Byron Bay – the shipwreck history was fascinating, and the views from the top weren’t bad either.”

🐢 Turtles, 🐬 dolphins and 🐋 humpback whales can be viewed from this vantage point at certain times of the year.

We watched 🐬 dolphins swimming along the rocky banks from the Lighthouse viewpoint on our visit!

Byron Bay is the perfect holiday resort destination for those looking for a more relaxed beach get-a-way, than that of busier 🏄 Surfers Paradise, to the north. If your travel plans include Australia and the east coast, then I definitely recommend a stop or stay at Byron Bay.

You won’t be disappointed!
