Byron Bay

With a great selection of cultural and scenic attractions, you will find plenty to see and do in Byron Bay.

This Northern Rivers location is inhabited by approximately 7,000 people.

Sydney, the state capital, is about 390 miles to the south of Byron Bay, while Tyagarah is 5 miles to the northwest.

Among the most family-friendly attractions are Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre and the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm.

Snap photos, admire the exhibits and learn all about our fragile environment at the Macadamia Castle. Be sure to ask the staff about hands-on activities and where to find the zoo's most popular species.

Whether you're in need of a certain map or just a few local tips, the friendly staff at Ballina Visitor Information Centre will be able to help you out.

To enjoy impressive views of natural landscapes and cascading water, take the trip out to Minyon Falls.

If you feel like catching a picturesque sunset, throwing a Frisbee or just sitting back by the water's edge, make your way to Kings Beach or Lighthouse Beach. Shelly Beach and Wategos Beach are two more recommended options.

Do you love nature? Tyagarah Nature Reserve is ready for you.

The Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens is a great place where discerning visitors can go to learn and be challenged. Take in the relaxing atmosphere, inquire about any special events and see if there's anything to your taste in the gift shop on the way out.

Study ship models and other interesting artifacts as you navigate through the exhibits at the Ballina Naval and Maritime Museum.

Take some time to admire the fascinating exhibits and examine the illuminating collections at the Bangalow Historical Museum & Tea Rooms.

You'll know you're in Byron Bay once you get a glimpse of Captain Cook Lookout and Pat Morton Lookout, two well-loved landmarks. They are fantastic places to snap a few selfies, just be sure that you leave enough room on your camera for Big Prawn!

To discover more about the history of Cape Byron Lighthouse and the men and women who kept it shining through the night, inquire about guided tours.

Familiarize yourself with local fashion and buy a few gifts at some of the area's shopping centers, such as Ballina Fair Shopping Centre and Bangalow Market.

Meet some locals over a couple of rounds of golf at the Ballina Golf Club. Once you've sunk the last ball and added up the score, head to the nearest bar and finish up your day with a cold, refreshing drink. The lush, green fairways of the Byron Bay Golf Course and the Teven Valley Golf Course are also worth checking out.

Think you've seen all there is to see in Byron Bay? Guess again. While the Ballina Racecourse might not be on the front page of your guide book, many travelers speak highly of their time there.
