Located on the NSW north coast, Byron Bay was a very popular destination for those who were attracted to an alternative lifestyle. Today, people from all walks of life are residents, whilst a large number of visitors continue to book it as their holiday destination.

Located approximately 790 km north of Sydney and only 173 km south of Brisbane, Byron Bay is nestled between the rocky headland of Cape Byron and the hills to the west. With surf, sand, beaches, and rainforest, it provides a tropical paradise. For those seeking natural pursuits there are the annual migration of whales, fishing, numerous tours and bushwalking opportunities.

For the more active among us there is surfing, hang gliding, tandem sky diving, ultra light flights, canoeing, scuba diving, snorkelling, just to name a few.
