Images Of Beautiful Byron Bay Australia
Having spent our first 2 days after arriving in Sydney, Australia from our home in British Columbia – 🍁 Canada, it was time start beginning our travels to the eastern part of this vast Country.
Our first stop on our Australian adventure was the famous resort town of Byron Bay, situated on the eastern shores of the Pacific.
Byron Bay is a picturesque seaside town approximately 770 kilometers north of Sydney, and just 165 kilometers south of Brisbane.
This is a very popular location for both Australians and visitors, traveling to this destination from across the 🌎 globe.
While making our travel plans and the places we should visit during our stay, it was recommended by many to be sure to visit this part of Australia.
Particularly if you are 🏖 beach lovers like ourselves.
Our plan was to spend 2 nights here and then continue on to – Gold Coast. We could have easily spent a few more days in enjoying the sites and the beach in Byron Bay!
Getting To Byron Bay Australia Is Easy
Byron Bay Airport
We chose to 🛫 fly from Sydney to Byron Bay, because of our time constraints. It was fast, easy and surprisingly, very affordable!
You also have the option of 🚍 bus transportation or taking the 🚂 train, but will take you much longer depending on how much time you have and your budget.
Surprisingly to us, our travel agent suggested flying as the best alternative, to that of the train. With the specials on at that time, it ended up cheaper in the long run as well.🤑
This is one of the many reasons and 👩 Benefits of Booking With A Travel Agent, especially with one who specializes in travel specifically to the Country you are visiting.

Australias Eastern Most Point
Byron Bay not only has beautiful beaches to enjoy and surrounded by lush rain forests with numerous spa type accommodations to choose from, it is also the most eastern point of Australia.
The ⚓ Cape Byron Lighthouse and State Conservation Area are located here as well to visit.
Cape Byron Headland Reserve
It’s a pleasant 🥾 hike from the main beach, offering spectacular views of the surrounding Bay and area. This is not to be missed when visiting Byron Bay!

Byron Bay is the perfect holiday resort destination for those looking for a more relaxed beach get-a-way, than that of busier 🏄 Surfers Paradise to the north.
