Best Places To Stay In Byron

by jeffa79

My girlfriend and I are spending about 6 nights in Byron in early-mid December and are looking for suggestions on good places to stay in the area, well located and not too expensive (we are travelling for around a month so budget is pretty important).

Any suggestions on budget hotels for the area? Ideally we would be looking to pay around AUS$130-150 per night but obviously this would change depending on what we could get.

Please advise us on the best places to stay in the area.

Many thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
what kind of accommodation are you looking for? (youth hostel, 1-5 star hotel)? A double room in a youth hostal costs you about AUD 40.-

cheers, Jacqueline

Hi Byron Bay is a popular destination and they know how to charge for accommodation. You will be on the edge of school holidays and christmas, expect to pay close to top price. We stayed there in Sept and paid $150 a night, but there are cheaper places. I recommend you use some of rhe web accommodation pages such as tripadvisor, needtoescape.com etc etc. Also page through VT

There's a couple of really nice backpacker hostels in Byron Bay - check them out via google.

If you google "Byron bay accommodation" there are numeous websites that offer accommodation just in Byron Bay.
I recently stayed at the Lord Byron Resort in an apartment and it was disgusting. I don't reccommend that place at all.

We stayed there many years ago and it was really nice! I guess everything decays!

I think the standard rooms in the main building are alright, I didn't see those ones, but we had an apartment for 5 people and it was so old, the walls had holes and dents in them. Some had been covered up with plaster, but not repainted and the tiled floor turned our feet black within the first hour!
There were no extras in the bathroom, like shower caps, little soaps and facecloths. We had one little soap and one facecloth between us!
It was just very old and no work had been done to it.
And if you can't take the stairs, there is only 1 apartment on the ground floor.
We were lucky to get that one with my knee!

We stayed there about 16 years ago! Girlfriend and I used to play golf and scuba dive - those were in the good old days - before Byron got too trendy.

Thanks for the info. By the way, what was the name of the place you stayed in in Byron for $150 per night? This sounds like the sort of place we would consider.

Cheers,
Jeff

Travel Tips for Byron Bay

Byron Bay Dive Centre

by bobinalong

..on Marvel Street are the best - top people top gear and all in all highly recommended!

I did the SSI open water course there, and then several dives and had a great time. Julian Rocks is a great dive site. Bought my snorkel and mask there and still going strong 2 years later....

Sea Views (Ballina)

by leffe3 about Shelly's On The Beach

Very popular spot overlooking the ocean. Essentially a kiosk with a large terrace (partially covered) with the best view in Ballina - we were lucky enough to spot dolphins out to see while eating an enormous breakfast (strangely named 'dolphin' or the even bigger 'whale' breakfast - thankfully neither featured their namesakes!). Breakfasts are the popular item here although its location and being one of the few places serving this part of the beach ensures that it is busy throughout the day.

Most Easternly Point in Australia

by marisa81

Once you hike up to the see the lighthouse, you can walk a little further to get to the most eastern point in Australia. The view of the ocean is breathtaking from up here, definitely worth the walk!

Beautiful Clear Water

by lachydragon

The main stretch of beach running from town (Main Beach) along the walkway (Clarks Beach) and ending at Palm Valley (The Pass) has som estunning swimming year-round. We have been in Byron in winter and even in July, the water is quite warm. It seems that as soon as winter comes and you get to May/June Byron seems to get a warm current past making it a great time for swimming and avoiding the crowds.

Byron Bay - A Surfers Paradise

by Mikebb

During August, 2003 we had an overnight stay on our way down the Northern New South Wales coast. It is a beautiful tourist location having a magnificent surf and swimming beach, a large lighthouse on the cliff and accommodation to cater for everyone from backpackers to luxury apartments. Although it was at the end of winter the weather was warm and sunny with daytime temperature being about 21C. We were disappointed that we could only stay overnight as Byron Bay would be a good place to spend a week, it is less than a 2 hour drive to the Gold Coast and Surfers Paradise on the Queensland Gold Coast.

During September, 2006 we returned to Byron Bay for a 2 night visit on our drive from Brisbane to Sydney. This visit we used Byron Bay as a base to visit the hinterland towns of Mullumbimby, Murwillumbah and Nimbim which still remains a hippie town. For those intersted in hippies there are some interesting photos on my Nimbin pages. We also enjoyed some nice dining in Byron.

"The Lighthouse - Most Easterly Point In Australia"

The lighthouse is situated on the headland and gives a great view of the coast north and south, as well the inland country to the west. The morning we were there the ocean was alive, a pod of dolphins lingered offshore for half an hour.

"Visitor Centre Tells The History"

The Visitors Centre is worth a visit to obtain knowledge of the region
