The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa

Byron at Byron

There are a few places in the Byron Bay area that take your breath away, The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa is one of them – not only because it’s beautiful, but because by the time you leave here, you’ll be breathing a lot slower.

Masters art of relaxation and rejuvenation, The Byron at Byron’s “nothing is too much trouble” take on every interaction with their guests is really what sets this magical place apart from so many other businesses offering boutique, luxury accommodation in the area.

So what exactly does “getting it right” mean anyway? Well, it means day spa to die for, world class wellness, the most beautiful of beaches on your door step, magical gardens surrounded by a forest filled with native flora, fauna and little critters of all kinds. It means five star open-air dining by candlelight, the perfect pool, rooms that pride themselves on the little things that matter and the kind of service that leaves you feeling more like long lost family than a paying guest.

The healing sounds of nature fill the air in this amazing place with more than ninety bird species singing in symphony and meandering boardwalks that lead to unforgettable sunrises and sunsets.

This Asian inspired sub-tropical piece of paradise set on 18-hectares of rainforest is far enough away from Byron to feel isolated, but close enough to nip into town for a bit of retail therapy or dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants that now call this iconic beachside town home.

The 12th Fiesta is happening this year from the 3rd to the 5th of November.

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.

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.

Renowned for its sense of community and thought-provoking programming, the festival explores the importance of literature and debate in shaping our lives.

Byron Bay whats on

This year, yet another riveting line-up of writers and thinkers will converge on beautiful Byron Bay to inspire and entertain all those interested in art of writing and anyone who just loves to read a good book. The Byron Writers Festival is the central hub to the Northern Rivers’ active, vibrant literary culture. The purpose of this annual event is to create and delivers programs that involve and enrich professional, amateur and aspiring writers (and readers) of all ages.

‘The 21st Byron Writers Festival program aims to soar high across many different dominions. We seek to inspire, engage and cultivate accessible conversations between our writer guests and avid audiences,’ says Festival Director, Edwina Johnson. ‘We are especially proud of this year’s Program – for its cultural diversity, scope and probing amalgamation of important topics and different writing genres.’

Acclaimed Australian novelists include Kate Grenville, Ashley Hay, Anita Heiss, Hannah Kent, A.S. Patric, Nicolas Rothwell, Kim Scott and Byron Bay based Rob Drewe who will launch his new novel Whipbird at the Festival. They join a best-selling line-up of Australian crime writers, including David Free, Mirandi Riwoe (M.J. Tjia), Michael Robotham and Jock Serong.

ABIA Award winner and rock icon Jimmy Barnes will discuss his bestselling, critically acclaimed memoir, Working Class Boy. Legendary singer and songwriter Tex Perkins will reveal his newly released autobiography. The two will come together for a special ABC Radio National session with presenter Sarah Kanowski. Sarah Blasko will feature in a one-on-one conversation with The Saturday Paper’s Erik Jensen as well as a Music Makers session with musician and novelist Holly Throsby.

This year’s festival reveals an exciting and compelling program across six stages and will be complemented by diverse writers’ workshops, satellite events and literary dinners throughout Byron Bay and the wider Northern Rivers region.

 “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  –

Belongil Beach & The Wreck

Surrounded by natural beauty, you’ll find it easy to unwind and relax on soft sand, enjoy invigorating swims in crystal-clear water and glorious sunrises and sunsets over the deep blue ocean.

Byron Bay whats on

Whether it’s swimming, surfing, kayaking fishing, or just rolling out your towel and relaxing on the soft sand Byron Bay’s gorgeous beaches have something that will suit everyone.

Belongil is great place to walk anytime of the day, but if you’re looking for something to do in the early morning this beach is pure magic!

A short walk from the Main Beach and centre of town The Wreck named after the remains of the Wollongbar ship lodged just 30m offshore. The ship lost its tie to the old Byron Bay Pier during a cyclone in 1922 and sank. It now provides great snorkelling options and surf in the right conditions. Dogs are allowed here, providing the opportunity to socialise with other dog lovers or just enjoy a swim or surf when the swell is up.
