The relaxed beachside town of Byron Bay has managed to retain its own trendy culture in spite of being a popular holiday destination for both domestic and international travellers. Situated in the north east corner of New South Wales, about 165km south of Brisbane and 770km north of Sydney, Byron lures those from the south in search of a warmer climate and those in Queensland looking to get away from the intense summer heat.
Popular for stunning beaches and wildlife, the Byron township and surrounding area offers a range of activities including skydiving, surfing, scuba diving, hang gliding, kayaking with dolphins, horse riding, fishing and golfing. Known for its alternative atmosphere, Byron is home to award winning cafes and restaurants, relaxed bars, boutique shopping, festivals and plenty of local artist’s galleries. It’s no wonder the area is a sought after wedding destination.
The surrounding Northern Rivers Region is full of sub-tropical rainforests, small towns & villages and picturesque countryside. The area is known for producing everything from macadamia nuts, coffee, cheeses and a delicious range of fruits that you’re able to pick up at the local farmer’s markets.
It’s a relaxing, scenic region where NSW meets Queensland and stops to appreciate the view.
