Walk up to the Byron Bay lighthouse

A favorite for both locals and visitors to the beautiful town, Byron Lighthouse stands at the most Eastern point of mainland Australia and the views from it are incredible. Sunset is a great time to hike up to it (make sure you go the beach way for the most beautiful scenery!), as the afterglows over the Eastern sea are amazing from it.

Sit on the beach

Byron has a lot to offer, but one of the very best ways to soak up the sights, sounds, and smells of Byron Bay is to sit on the beach and do nothing. With white sand, picturesque headlands, and crystal clear water, Byron is home to some of the world’s most stunning beaches. Swim, surf, read, sleep, or people-watch, a visit to Byron Bay is not complete without a trip to at least one of the area’s beautiful beaches.
