Byron Bay NSW. The seaside holiday atmosphere of this coastal town with its shopping, surfing and swimming beaches and its growing collection of restaurants make a popular stopoff on the Sydney to Brisbane Pacific Highway Route. See more about Visit Byron Bay NSW.
The beaches here are amongst the best New South Wales has to offer, with it are the diving and snorkel sites that will leave life-long memories.
Main Beach is protected by the Byron Bay Surf Club. Swimmers, particularly young families are advised to go here. Swim between the flags, people!
Wategos has great views and even picnic sites to enjoy. Located some two kilometres from the town’s centre.
Little Wategos is also known for its surf. One nice way to get there is along the Cape Byron Walking Track. Just further along this track are stupendous views of the coastline and the ocean. With a bit of luck, spot turtles and dolphins here.
The Pass, also very scenic is known for its great surf. Waves form long right-handed tubes on a good day. World famous, in fact, amongst surfers.
You can also find good snorkelling and diving here, especially around the Cape and at Fisherman’s Lookout.
Also, a little known beach here between Clarkes Beach and the Pass, is Captain Cooks Beach. Usually calmer than the other beaches, great for idling with a beach umbrella and a good book, interspersed with lazy swims in the cool aqua waters.
Clarkes Beach is another sandy beach, great for lying down on and relaxing. Swimming and snorkelling is also enjoyed here, you can spot humpback whales here in their season.
You can also find good surf breaks along Tallow Beach. Tallow is backed by the Arkawal National Park and is worth a visit or more just for that.
Swimmers should be aware of the rips that run along this long beach. The Cosy Corner is probably best for those keen on swimming.
The Byron World First Solar Train: A return service, open 364 days a year, except Christmas Day. This fully restored two carriage heritage train is powered by solar energy! The first of its kind, with probably many more to come, hails from the late 1940s.
Running along a three kilometre coastal track, the ten minute ride on the train links Byron Town Centre with the North Beach precinct and the Byron Arts Estate.
