Just spent two days at Byron Bay. It’s a local tip from my journey. It is the most east of Australia. I really recommend if you plan to go to Gold Coast or Brisbane. Maybe you can consider to spend a couple days here.
If you live in Sydney, it is suitable for someone who need a way out from a busy life. Take a flight and head to Ballina Airport. Easy and fast to get Byron Bay. Ready to bare foot and laid back mode?
1.Public transportation (Ballina to Byron Bay)
Take route 640 bus and head to Byron Bay tourist information center. It costs approximately 10 AUD and an hour to get there. Although you can choose shuttle bus, it costs double but less time. However, if you travel light and do not rush to there, why not take a local bus. The way to there is so so so beautiful. I was lucky to take sunset bus. It is the best sunset I’ve ever seen.
Turn your holiday mode on. Beach life is main part of Byron Bay. Never skip here and have a cocktail before you head to beach. Not just Mexican style but byron hipster one here.

5.Byron Bay YHA
Very close to the center of Byron Bay. Friendly staff and clean facility. They are reconstructing their kitchen now. Except noise in the morning, the else is very good.

There are bunch of awesome beaches at Byron Bay, especially the way to lighthouse. I don’t want to be a spoiler because you might find so many places to stay. Every time you might think this is the most beautiful places I’ve seen, and then you will say this is the best at next corner.
So, all you can do now is book the ticket and expect the trip now 🙂
