Byron Bay has long been heralded as one of Australia’s most popular and enduring holiday destinations. Her charm is multi-faceted and chameleonesque, with a vibrant café culture serving as the linchpin for a communal celebration of arts, creativity, environment, nature and lifestyle.
Famed for unspoilt surf beaches and a laid back ‘alternative’ lifestyle, Byron Bay is also home to Australia’s most Easterly Point, Cape Byron, where the iconic Byron Bay Lighthouse overlooks stunning ocean views and rugged headland vistas.
Byron’s town centre is a hub of exciting contradictions where high end boutiques rub shoulders with quirky stores selling retro items and vintage clothing, kombi vans share the roads with new model convertibles, restaurants serving modern cuisine sit comfortably alongside vegan wholefood cafes, and a stroll along the Esplanade will bring forth an amalgamation of accents, as backpackers mix it up with locals, day trippers and holiday makers of every nationality.
In addition to her draw card beaches, rural beauty and lifestyle, Byron Bay plays year round host to festivals, markets, concerts, theatre and an active live music scene. With such an abundance of attractions and activities, the coastal town sees up to 1.7million visitors annually. With trademark adaptability, Byron Bay has risen to demand with a range of accommodation options available to satisfy every taste and budget.
Whether you are seeking a beachfront house, a cabin in the hinterland, a backpacker’s hostel, bed and breakfast, a farm stay, the luxury of a resort, or the ultimate in boutique accommodation, Byron Bay’s accommodation options are as extensive and diverse as her environment. Visitors preferring a more traditional accommodation style can select from an abundance of serviced apartments, hotels and resorts and caravan parks and campgrounds.
Never a Shire to be considered mainstream, however, Byron Bay’s accommodation also extends to the awe inspiring, the inspirational, and the one-of-a-kind hidden secrets that will ensure your accommodation is as memorable as your holiday experience.
For a taste of what’s on offer, you can rent lodgings in one of the Lighthouse Keeper’s Assistant’s cottages atop Cape Byron – particularly popular during whale watching season; or surround yourself by ancient rainforest nestled in a luxury mountain retreat; pamper yourself in a resort frequented by international celebrities; or if you’re feeling adventurous you can opt for jungle camping, or even spend the night in a teepee.
