Whale Watching

Do something a little different this year. Take your family and friends to watch the magnificent humpback whales make their journey from antarctic waters, past Cape Byron headland, to their breading ground in Far North Queensland.

CAPE BYRON LIGHTHOUSE: This world-renowned landmark offers the best spot to watch the whales pass by, offering unobstructed panoramic ocean views and other possible sightings of Migaloo the white whale, sea turtles and dolphins. 

KAYAK TOUR: Feeling adventurous? Your front row seat to all of the whale watching action is on the water! Take a kayak tour and get up close with the whales as they pass by.

Craft Distilleries

Byron Bay distillery experiences are the hottest new trend. Share a drink of craft beer or gin, in the heart of Byron’s hinterland.

Tasting sessions & tours are back for 2020! After being named Australia’s most ‘Sustainable Distillery of the Year’, this hidden sub-tropical oasis is the place to be. Cape Byron Distillery is home to Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin – they offer a truly unique rainforest experience, encouraging you to touch, see and smell native rainforest botanicals. What’s more, you’ll enjoy a unique tasing experience overlooking the picturesque Brookfarm.

Join Husk for a tour through their distillery, where you will discover the star botanicals of Ink Gin, and taste the full range of spirits. As the only paddock to bottle rum distillery in Australia, Husk is renowned for growing 100% of the sugar cane used in their rum, on their own farm. It certainly makes the ‘must see’ list when exploring Byron Bay.

Hinterland Adventures

Hinterland Hideaway

Put your isolation frustrations in the past and enjoy the crisp fresh air and beautiful landscape of Byron’s hinterland. It’s the perfect chance to put your phone away, connect with nature and appreciate your surroundings.

MINYON FALLS: Explore stunning views and an incredible waterfall that plunges 100m down to ground level. This hinterland treasure is part of the World Heritage Nightcap National Park, and offers a 7.5km walking trail which makes its way through rainforest and hidden swimming holes.

MT. WARNING: This summit trail is another great hinterland hotspot. It’s a slightly more difficult track, making its way through rainforest terrain for about 9km. Mt Waning stretches an impressive 1,100m high and is located in Wollumbin National Park, offering 360 degree views of the ocean as well as a direct view of Gold Coast.

Beach Bliss

Beach Bliss

Byron Bay’s crystal blue ocean water and white sand beaches first put it on the map. The days are warm enough to lay out on the beach and catch some rays, while the evenings drop to a cool temperature – crisp enough for wooly jumpers, bonfires and a glass of red wine.

SUNRISE SPECTACULAR: While many flock to Byron’s lighthouse to catch the ultimate sunrise spot – if your planning to settle in on the sand with a blanket and a piping hot cup of coffee, Tallows beach is the place to be.

SUNSET SERENITY: Gather friends and family and take a trip down to Main Beach for the ultimate photo worthy sunset spot.

WIND SHELTER: Cosy Corner needs no introduction – it really is a the cosiest corner of Bryon Bay! Protected from the northern winds, it makes for the perfect beach hideaway.
