Wild Goat Events

Wedding Transport Byron Bay

At Byron Bay Luxe we love showcasing locals who are pushing the boundaries of creativity and customer service to create a totally unique experience for those who visit this magical place that we are blessed to call home.

One such local is Katie Elliott, a gypsy spirit who has travelled the world working for boutique event companies. Katie has returned to Byron to share her very unique, international experience and an infectious passion for all that Byron Bay has to offer (especially the landmark lighthouse!) Like us, Katie bases her business around the philosophy that “its’ the little things that make a difference” and we are proud to work with her and her team to create unforgettable experiences for people to celebrate that special occasion.

The goats of the Byron Bay lighthouse are no longer around, but they are certainly the inspiration behind Wild Goat Events. ‘The goats were nearly as iconic as the lighthouse,’ says Katie, who recalls the outrage when it was decided, back in 2006, that they should be removed.

Katie and the team at Wild Goat Events specialise in creating intimate experiences all over the Byron Shire and boast exclusive access to Byron Bay’s iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse Café deck, in the heart of the lighthouse precinct.

With Wild Goat Events you can soak up the early morning rays with Australia’s most luxurious sunrise experience tailored for both couples and groups alike. Toast the Sun seasonal picnics are a celebration of nature and incredible food. Take your gourmet picnic basket down by the beach for an intimate barefoot breakfast, or see the sunrise glow with panoramic views at the Cape Byron Lighthouse. It really is a celebration worth waking up for.

Katie has also created unforgettable wedding proposal, hen’s weekend, private party, incentive event and wedding packages that take care of every detail, helping make your dreams a reality.

Wild Goat Events bring a wealth of global experience to any kind of celebration, all the benefits that come with such an established network of locals and exclusive access to some of Byron’s most amazing locations.

At Byron Bay Luxe Limousines, we’re often taking musos and guests alike to festivals. In a musical landscape dominated by super-festivals, The Mullum Music Festival is part of an alternative breed of smaller, more boutique style events making their own very distinctive mark on the industry. Happening over four magical days and nights this weekend, this is one festival that really does offer something for every music taste and inclination.

The Mullum Music Fest’s popularity with both musicians and fans is testament to the musical integrity that after ten years this now famous event can be truly proud of.

With a focus on bringing great people together for the love of music and community, artists are often seen mingling with the crowd and jumping in as guest performers, thoroughly enjoying themselves amongst a laid-back family atmosphere when not on stage.

Aside from an awesome line up of music yet again, there will be workshops, comedians, circus acts, and a street parade.  This year’s line-up ensures that the 10th Anniversary milestone will be honoured in style, with names like Jon Cleary & The Monster Gentlemen, Frazey Ford, Marlon Williams & The Yarra Benders, Lindi Ortega, Too Many Zooz, Z-Star Delta, Gabriel Garzón-Montano, The East Pointers, The Teskey Brothers and Jazz Party on the bill.

Magical Mount Warning

Mount Warning

The Northern Rivers region showcases the world’s oldest subtropical rainforests, magnificent beaches stretching from the Gold Coast to Byron Bay and mountains forged by ancient volcanoes more than 23 million years ago.

The Mt. Warning Rainforest Park is located right between the Gold Coast and Byron Bay, providing the perfect base to explore the cosy mountain villages, lush rainforests, towering waterfalls, golden beaches, funky craft markets and hidden art galleries.

Be the first in Australia to see the sunrise from the top of Mt Warning. The 8.8 km, five hour return walk through the rainforest, culminates in breathtaking 360 degree views around the ancient caldera with coastal views stretching from The Gold Coast to Byron Bay.

Winding upwards from the Breakfast Creek parking area, the Mount Warning summit track passes through a variety of vegetation communities. Subtropical and temperate rainforest, wet sclerophyll forest and heath shrub land are all encountered on your journey. The climb ends with a challenging rock scramble before reaching the summit, the perfect place to picnic before heading back down again.

As an alternative to climbing the mountain, enjoy a shorter walk catering for the less energetic. The Lyrebird Track crosses Breakfast Creek before winding some 200m through palm forest to a platform set amongst the lush tropical rainforest. A picnic at The Korrumbyn Creek Picnic Area, situated on the left hand side of the road as you drive towards the mountain, also makes for a great day out.

 Seven Mile Beach

 Seven Mile Beach

South of Byron Bay towards Lennox Head stretches Seven Mile Beach. This expansive sweep of rugged beach bordered by coastal wilderness feels untamed and primitive. Untouched by development, it’s the perfect place to surf a serious wave solo, ride horses on pristine sands, join the seasoned fisherman beach fishing along the shore, or just enjoy a secluded day on this incredible part of the coastline.

Kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes as you stroll back along the beach. Once you reach Lennox Head there’s access behind the Surf Life Saving Club to Lake Ainsworth, a freshwater tea-tree lake ideal for small boats and picnicking under the paperbark trees.

Pack a gourmet picnic and spend a lazy afternoon under the shade of a nearby tree at one of the many secluded spots or head to one of the many fabulous cafes in Lennox Village for a bit to eat.

Book today for Byron transfers to the airport, or to events in and around Byron Bay.

Minyon Falls

Byron Bay Things to Do in September Part 2

Things to Do – Minyon Falls

 

Minyon Falls Byron Bay

A visit to the Byron Bay area isn’t complete without a visit to the magical Minyon Falls. This worthy walking track offers a gorgeous day out and the opportunity to experience a range of forests, pristine creeks and a spectacular waterfall in Nightcap National Park, which was added to the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Site in 1986.

Winding through Nightcap escarpment, this track is sure to both challenge and delight bushwalking fans. Leading through a rainforest to a scenic waterfall the view of the falls themselves and the coast (on a clear day) is something to behold indeed.

From the lookout, watch the cascades flow over to a deep palm-shaded gorge below that serves as a beautiful natural pool that is perfect for swimming.

Minyon Falls Byron Bay is a great place for a quick stop, but if you’d like to spend longer at this special place, there’s a picnic area with plenty of shady trees, barbecues and picnic tables. There are also a couple of bushwalks that leave from the picnic area, including one trail that follows a 4.5km route from the top of the falls, across the ridge, near Quandong Falls, down into the valley to the bottom of the Minyon falls. This track continues for 2.5km to Minyon Grass, then joins the road for 1.2km back to the falls car park to form a loop. A shorter, 2.5 km track runs from Minyon Grass to the bottom of the falls.[5] Another walking trail in the area is the Boggy Creek Walk from the Rummery Park Campground to the top of the Falls (45 minutes each way).

Note: this walk is in a remote location and weather can be unpredictable, so ensure you’re well-prepared, bring appropriate clothing and equipment, and advise a family member or friend of your travel plans.

Enjoy!

Main Beach Byron Bay

 

Byron Bay Beach

Byron Bay is unique in so many ways, but one of the biggest jewels in this world famous town’s crown would have to be its beaches and right in front of the town is one of the best!

Main Beach is located directly in front of the town of Byron Bay and continues southeast toward Clarke’s Beach and the lighthouse. A large grassy park with play equipment, picnic tables and barbeques occupies the beachfront and continues south beyond the Surf Club. This beach’s safe, north-facing curve of beach offers a popular surfing break, soft white sand and turquoise ocean as far as the eye can see.

The Surf Club, which opened in 1907, is the second oldest Club north of Sydney and provides the Surf Lifesavers that patrol the beach year round.

Main Beach is popular with young swimmers and families alike, as most of the waves that reach the shore need to refract around Cape Byron, limiting wave height and providing safer swimming conditions. This also means that the surf breaks are relatively small.

Main Beach is also great for snorkelling adventures. The State’s most northerly Aquatic Reserve is positioned about 3km from the shore around the area of Julian Rocks. This area has many caves and corals that attract both tropical and temperate fish. It is a popular place for snorkelling and diving. You can also snorkel out to the Tassie II, a wreck just off the coast.

Clarkes Beach

 

Situated between Main Beach and the Pass, Clarkes Beach is an idyllic north-facing beach with beachfront parking, amenities and Caravan Park. A protected area, with near-perfect swimming conditions all year round, the waves here are relatively small in the area, attracting many of the learn-to-surf programs.

Clarke’s beach provides ideal conditions for many water activities, including body boarding, windsurfing, paragliding, kite-surfing and long boarding. Humpback whales have also been known to frolic in the waters of the bay with their calves, as they head back to Antarctica in the wintertime.

The Pass

 

Situated between the Fisherman’s Lookout and the headland, The Pass beach curves around, facing a north-easterly direction. Waves that refract around Cape Byron therefore run at near right angles toward the shore which can create dangerous swimming conditions but also internationally recognised surf. The positioning of the bay creates long, tubing right-handers that are considered world class and puts the Pass into the Top 15 best surf beaches in Australia.

The Fisherman’s Lookout is a large wooden structure, with a platform at the top from which you can admire the beautiful view, the crowds of surfers, fish, dolphins, and migrating whales during the Winter.

WHAT TO DO IN BYRON BAY

Byron Bay Lighthouse Walk

Ballina Byron Transfers

A trip to Byron Bay isn’t complete without walking up to the Lighthouse! It literally is a “must see”. This beautifully maintained lighthouse is iconic of Byron Bay, sitting perched high on the headland overlooking the bay. Built in 1901 by Charles Harding, it stands on the most easterly point of the Australian mainland and is Australia’s most powerful lighthouse after being converted to mains electricity in 1956.

To begin, walk up to main beach and start heading towards the lighthouse. After a gentle 20 min stroll, you can stop for a coffee at the Clarkes Beach Café, then carry on another 10 mins until you reach The Pass – a world famous surf spot. Here you can walk up the steps to the lookout and watch the surfers in action.

From The Pass head off the beach and up and over a headland to Wategos Beach then continue the trek up to the lighthouse, walking through a conservation park to reach the most easterly point of Australia.  Just a few more steps and you have made it to the icon of Byron Bay. Take some time to look inside the lighthouse, soak up some history, buy some souvenirs, or just relax with an ice-cream as you soak up the spectacular view.

From the lighthouse you can see the whole of the township, bay and mountains.  Look the other way and you can see down to Tallows, Broken Head and Lennox Head in the distance. If you are in Byron Bay during winter you will hopefully witness the humpback whales migrating and you can see pods of dolphins all year round. Whatever the time of year, the lighthouse walk is amazing, regardless of what you may or may not see in the water.

WHITES BEACH

Byron Bay Transfers

The Best Kept Beach Secret (in Australia!)

The secluded Whites Beach located at Broken Head just south of Byron Bay, makes you feel like you’re a million miles from anywhere, washed up on an Island paradise. Named Australia’s number one secret destination in Australian Traveller magazine’s 100 Incredible Travel Secrets of Australia, Whites Beach is well known to locals but due to its isolated location isn’t really on the tourists hit list due to the drive along the dirt Seven Mile Beach Rd, no parking and the sometimes difficult to negotiate access track. Stunning ocean views and vistas as you walk down to a beautiful secluded beach make it all worthwhile though.

This hidden gem of a beach is fringed with sub-tropical rain forest and shady pandanus palms thriving along the rocky coastline.  As it’s a bit of a steep decent to the beach don’t bring loads of stuff you won’t need, with no shops or supplies to be had nearby, make sure you bring some water, a picnic and sunscreen. Should you choose the adventure of it all, you will surely be rewarded with a beautiful day out at what has to be the most fabulous beach by a long shot. Enjoy!

 “Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”
 – William Faulkner  –
