Australia's bohemian capital and quintessential surf town needs very little introduction. Drawing in travellers with a hankering for salty days and balmy nights, Byron Bay travel has become the postcard of the Australian holiday; a place where many decide to pull up camp and stay a little longer. However much you've daydreamed about its natural beauty and enviable way of life, this perfectly balanced area is likely to exceed your expectations. The typical day in Byron Bay might start with a coffee at Top Shop, taken in hand for a stroll past the milky lighthouse that stands at Cape Byron, the most eastern point of Australia. As the sun rises a little higher you'll likely pull up in the crystal bay of soft waves known as Wategoes, where taking a dip in the ocean and spotting of pod of dolphins will leave you sufficiently energised for the day. Later - after a chicken parma and a few ciders at the pub - you may feel inclined to unwind into the town's spiritual side with a crystal healing session or tarot card reading. That's if you haven’t already overdosed on spiritual Zen with a trip into the mountains to see rainbows in the radical town of Nimbin and admire local works of art at Tweed Regional Museum in Murwillumbah. Live music, surfing lessons and a whole lot of shopping and Byron Bay will be well and truly under your skin. Whether you stay a few days or few weeks you’ll always be left wanting more - Byron Bay is a place travellers get hooked on.
