Guide to Byron Bay
Byron Bay is a cool town that makes a good stop-off when exploring the east coast by campervan. Many people also come here specifically from Brisbane or Sydney as it is a fantastic destination, with a chilled vibe, low lying buildings and friendly people.
Byron boasts some excellent beaches and is especially noted for its surfing and whale watching. Most of all it is thoroughly laidback and resides in a region that is ripe for exploring by hired vehicle. Inland is the quirky mountain town of Nimbin, while the Gold Coast is just an hour away by road.
The beach is king and right in front is the north-facing Main Beach, or 'Byron Main'. The surf is not the best here but it's nice for swimming and sunbathing and you can park nearby. West is the nudist Belongil Beach, while east towards Cape Byron is Wategos Beach. The Pass is next up, beyond which is Tallow's Beach, which has the best surf and is a nice walk over the cape.
There's also scuba diving at Julian Rocks -doable by boat-while for landmarks, Cape Byron Lighthouse is worth a trek by day or in the evening for the sunset. You can also head out to the Broken Head Nature Reserve by campervan, plus there are many intriguing villages to explore within the nearby Rainbow Region.
Elsewhere are the hippie-centric country town of Nimbin, which is a nice drive by rental an hour or so west of Byron Bay. Farther north are Murwillumbah and then Brisbane, two hours away.
Camping at Byron Bay
First Sun Holiday Park is the closest campervan site to both Main Beach and the town and comes with powered and unpowered, self-contained units and lots of shade. Facilities are excellent and you are well placed for Byron's attractions.
Glen Villa Resort is farther back near the railway station, just a few hundred metres from the town centre. Best for couples and older groups, it boasts classy cabins and powered and unpowered campervan sites. The grounds are manicured and spacious and there's also a nice pool.
Byron Bay Tourist Village is farther out towards the nudist beach and has a quieter setting amid nature-tropical gardens, ponds and lots of opportunity to relax. Fixed accommodation and campervan sites are both well done.
Driving in Byron Bay
You can drive to Byron Bay from Sydney in a day, though the Pacific Highway can get pretty busy. It is best to approach Byron from the south, exiting at Lennox Head. Additionally, the Pacific Highway links up the Gold Coast in an hour, while good quality, winding roads head inland. You'll only need to drive in Byron itself if staying out of town.
