There are all kinds of accomodation in Byron Bay, get yourself a copy of the spanking new Lonely Planet, lots of suggestions there. The beaches around Byron Bay are magnificent. As for the music I would not know since I do not listen to that kind of electronica....
You will be able to obtain a 3 month visa from travel agencies in your countries, they need to have the Amadeus booking system, and they need all your passport details.

Sad but true. The days of Byron being an unspoilt paradise are long gone!

My favourite beach by far is Wategos Pass ("The pass" to locals). Take the road heading up to the light house and keep your eyes peeled for the sign or you'll miss it. It's further along from Clarks beach but get there early or parking is an absolute nightmare.

Visa required.

Byron Bay is a bit of a mecca for young people, although more of an alternative crowd as well as families - surfing, bars, crowds etc are attracted more to the Gold Coast an hour or so up the coast. And whilst, as previously indicated by other posters, it can be somewhat overrun at times (especially the southern hemisphere summer), there are loads of places to stay - from camping, motels, a couple of upmarket hotels - and any number of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Long stay residents tend to be pretty laidback - remnants of the 'hippie/alternative lifestyle boom' of the 70s.

Beauty of BB is as much its location - there are heaps of fab beaches - some officially part of Byron Bay itself to others a couple of kms away through to ones an hour or so south (if you head too far north you'll hit the over-development of the Gold Coast).

But its not all about beaches - the hinterland is beautiful, although in most instances you'll need your own transport as the options are pretty limited.

Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Byron Bay

Lazy Lennox Head

by grantravel

Lennox Head is a relaxed little town just south of Byron, about 15 mins drive. I used to spend every Easter there with my family. We always stayed in the only campground in the town, which surrounds the beautiful Lake Ainsworth. You can go for a swim in the ocean across the road then on the way back to your tent/caravan, have a dip in the lake! This is a great place for kids, we used to love it. Lake Ainsworth, with its tea-tree-coloured water, is also great for wind surfing and catamaran sailing.

The surfers know Lennox for its famous right hand point break, and the hang-gliders love the place for the sensational views when they take off from Pat Morton Lookout.

Accommodation in Lennox includes motels, caravan park, holiday flats, backpacker hostel and a rapidly expanding range of apartments and resort style complexes.

If you go to Lennox make sure to stop off at one of the best located pubs in Australia, the Lennox Pub. Directly opposite the beach, the pub will always assure you of a warm welcome, a refreshing beverage and a great meal.

I have been back there recently, and although it has changed alot, it is still much more peaceful than its bustling neighbour towns of Ballina and Byron Bay.

Light House

by amazingclick

The Light House at Byron Bay is a must see...not because the light house is really beautiful...because the view from up there is really breathtaking. It is located in the Most Easterly Point of the Australian mainland and secondly you can sometimes see dolphins and whales from there which is Awesome. When I went there were no whales, but, dolphins were definitely there.

Byron Bay Surf Club

by Mikebb

On the beachfront nearly in front of the Beach Hotel is the Surf Club which provides lifeguard services to the public enjoying the beach and surf. The Life Saving association is highly respected by the Australian public for the free services they have provided over the last 100 years. The clubrooms store the surfboats, boards, jet skis and other equipment used to patrol the beach.

Sea-Kayak with the Dolphins!

by lachydragon

Highly recommended is taking a sea-kayak trip from Clarks Beach around The Pass and into Little Wategos Beach - a stone's throw off Australia's Most Easterly Point.

Byron Bay Sea Kayaks run multiple trips per day during the peak summer season (November - February) and they cost around $60 per person. You will then meet up at Clarks Beach and get kitted out in life vests, helmets and paddles and will take the boats down to the beach to load. The trip is about 4 hours and takes you at a leisurely pace out past the Pass where you are likely to see Dolphins (we only saw them about 100m away since they were busy hearding a school of pilchards in for a snack and weren't interested in playing with Kayakers!). Once around the Passs you paddle to Little Wategos for a snack and drink with time for a little walk up to the lookouts etc before heading back onto the boats for the paddle back to the Pass.

No experience is necessary and it is a great way to see 'the Bay'.

Byron Bay

by Colzy

What can I say about Byron? It is fast becoming a 'must-see' for tourists as they head up or down the East coast of Australia. It is the most Easterly point of the Australian mainland and a place of rugged beauty with the coast and the beautiful hinterland.

The Byron I know is a little different from the tourist haven it resembles today. I grew up not far from here and remember the days when you didnt have to pay for parking to go up to the lighthouse and the goats roamed freely along the cliffs surrounding the area. Gee, don't I just sound like my parents! I can't believe I just said 'I remember the days when...' Scary!

It has changed immensely in the last 20 years but its natural beauty and the charm unique locals have not disappeared here in this wonderful town that must be described as a little piece of paradise.
