Famous for its “chilled” vibes, Byron Bay is a coastal town located on the far-north coast of NSW, Australia. See the sunrise first at Australia’s most easterly point by the iconic Cape Byron lighthouse. Byron as the locals call it, is known for its spectacular beaches, unique shopping, cool restaurants, world-class festivals, and vibrant community spirit.
Beyond the township of Byron Bay, the region includes many seaside villages, quaint hinterland towns such as, Broken Head, Bangalow and Mt Warning National Park, all with their own unique character. We promise you won’t want to leave.
Continue your road trip further south to the friendly Coffs Coast. Coffs Harbour is the vibrant heartbeat of the coast where you will discover everything from ancient rainforest, pristine marine life, to the Big Banana Fun Park and gorgeous beaches.
Coffs Coast is a wonderland of attractions. Head out and enjoy fun adventures such as kayaking, surfing and mountain biking, or go bushwalking and discover spectacular lookouts. Some of our favourite spots include Muttonbird Island, Forest Sky Pier and Diggers Beach.
Rise and shine early and spend all day driving through lush rainforest and woodlands. Enjoy the lofty lookout platforms at Ebor Falls, unpack a picnic at the dramatic Dangar Falls or see waters cascade an incredible 220m at Wollomombi Falls.
This is a spectacular area to explore World Heritage national parks, marvel at Australia’s second-highest waterfall. Dorrigo Rainforest Centre is the perfect place to discover ancient World Heritage wilderness, wonderful bushwalking trails and many intriguing animals including lyrebirds, a native bird with the ability to imitate almost any sound. The Skywalk Lookout is breathtaking.
Get back to camp just before sunset and crack the top off a cold one.
