Cape Byron Lighthouse sits on Australia’s most easterly point, a shining light over Byron Bay. Take a guided tour, find out about shipwrecks and enjoy spectacular views. Also a great place to spot the migrating humpback whales.
Drive through the beautiful Byron Bay Hinterland to Minyon Falls lookout, offering stunning views over the falls and rainforest below. With easy parking, picnic spots and barbecue facilities, it’s a fantastic day trip. There is also a great hiking track to the base of the waterfall where you can take a dip.
On your way to Minyon Falls, be sure to stop off in the small hinterland town of Federal where you will find arguably the best Japanese restaurant in the region – Doma Cafe. Open for breakfast and lunch (7.30am – 2.30pm daily)
Killen Falls is located just outside the quaint town of Newrybar. A spectacular waterfall dropping into a large, cool waterhole within a rainforest gully. An easy climb down the embankment.
Crystal Castle and Shambhala Gardens is one of Nature’s sacred places, another side to Byron you must see.
30 years ago this lush landscape was a bare paddock, overgrazed and treeless. The King family have created one of the most unique and enriching destinations in the southern hemisphere.
These private botanical gardens filled with extraordinary crystals, sub-tropical plant life and daily experiences for all ages will provide you with a uniquely fulfilling experience.
A great place to take the kids!
