The charming beach town of Byron Bay teems with restaurants, cafés, artisan breweries and fashionable boutiques so spend an afternoon exploring all that it has to offer. Main Beach is a hub of activity so spend an afternoon learning to surf with a guide, perhaps visit the nearby Cape Byron Lighthouse and stretch your legs on a scenic coastal walk.
