Named after Lord Byron's grandfather, Byron Bay is not only famous as the easternmost point of Australia, but even more so as one of the liveliest vacation spots in the country.
Step out of the city life by going to Norries Head and Pippi Beach. Family-friendly places like Bundjalung National Park and Lennox Head Beach will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Byron Bay: Mount Warning Summit Trail (in Mount Warning), Hastings Point Headland (in Hastings Point) and Broadwater National Park (in Broadwater). There's much more to do: hike along Cape Byron Walking Track, kick back and relax at Belongil Beach, get outside with Watersports Guru, and stroll through Wategos Beach.
