An Australian icon: Cape Byron Bay

26 comments


Byron Bay, NSW, Jan 17'

After our cruise ship from New Caledonia docked at Sydney Harbour, Ivor and I said farewell to my family and hopped onto a plane from Sydney to the iconic Byron Bay.

This was my first time visiting the much loved Australian holiday spot. The long white-sand and turquoise coastline is set upon rich green hinterlands. Sprinkled among the beautiful natural surrounds are trendy cafes, restaurants and bars, all of which have a coastal flare to them where everyone is wearing sandals and comfy yet stylish summer outfits.

The locals and holiday goers at Byron are a very eclectic bunch, from hippies, schoolies partyers (students finishing high school) to posh Sydney and Melbourne-siders.

I loved the coastal, but also multifaceted vibes of Byron. In the town's centre is streets lined with boutique clothing and homeware stores that range from low-priced souvenirs to upmarket designers. When you walk through Byron you never know what to expect, one night we stumbled upon a Sneaky Sound System concert and on another night during sunset we came across a vibrant drum circle on the beach.

Byron is a wonderful place to just wander around and is filled with beautiful spots such as Cape Byron Bay, which involves quite a windy drive to reach. Once we got up the cape, we saw an old cottage next to a picturesque white lighthouse. The views from up here of the ocean meeting the sand were incredible.

Byron Bay is a place where you must go if you are exploring New South Wales!

My next post will be on the great places to eat in Byron.

Thanks for reading!
