Explore Byron Bay
Byron Bay has always been known for the alternative lifestyle and friendly people and is the perfect holiday destination for people who want something more than beach alone.
Three kilometers from Byron Bay you can find the lighthouse, Byron Bay’s landmark, built in 1901. It stands 22 meters tall, 94 meters above sea level. Until today it remains a shipping aid and its light is the most powerfull in the Southern Hemisphere. Daily tours give visitors and locals the oppurtunity to find out more about the history and have a look inside. The area directly surrounding the lighthouse is perfect to see the local dolphins and turtles. During May till October each year it offers a great location to watch the Humpback whale’s migration
The many cafes and the relaxed atmosphere put you in a holiday mood right away. For those seeking culture, nightlife and fine dining, Byron also has a lot to offer.
