where's the party?

by yogachick2004

I heard that Byron Bay is the most incredible place on earth with the Yoga Arts, sun and surf. What is the community like there? Young, backpacker types? I'm looking for information about the places to hang out and soak in the world.

Re: Re: where's the party?

I'm off there at the end of June (sorry Sharon -:)). Its a bit more commercial than the posting implies - this is no alternative hang-out. But its not yet been taken over by the rampant commecialism of the Gold Coast only an hour's drive north.

I can tell you more on my return!

Keith, you wont belive it, i read last friday (or maybe the friday before that one) in Yediot Achronot about it, There's a lovely (but i mean Lovely !) Israel Community in Byron bay. nice peopple that quit a high level life style here and moved there to get some quiet and relaxing life. Many of them are doing arts and some do other things but basically no one works like crazy or like the way they were here, and they live in an amazing places there... like at the end of the world.... and guess what ? there's (maybe more then one) an Israeli restaurant there which makes Jachnun for Saturdays !
So here you have what to dream about... LOL
Also i heared that there's an Israeli grocery store there.
Anyway, will be looking foorward to your impressions.

Travel Tips for Byron Bay

Arakwal National Park

by kooka3

The 183-hectare park stretches from the lighthouse reserve on Australia's most easterly point south along Tallow Beach for nearly two kilometres. Its creation is the result of the first indigenous land use agreement in Australia to provide for such a park.

Cape Byron Headland stands on the most easterly point of the Australian mainland. A spectacular clifftop walking track offers panoramic views of the ocean and north coast hinterland. An outstanding vantage point for viewing a diverse range of marine life, including turtles, dolphins and the humpback whales on their annual migration.

It's 2 km east of Byron Bay, along Lighthouse Road.

Byron Bay lighthouse

by marisa81

The one main 'touristy' thing to do in byron bay, besides lay on the beach, is to walk up to the lighthouse. It is about a 50 min walk, up a windy road. The views from the top are amazing. Once up at the lighthouse, you can climb down a bit to the eastern most point of australia. In certain seasons, it is said that you can actually see the whales migrating past the point, (from the view at the top by the lighthouse) I however was unfortunately not there at the right season.

The Lighthouse

by Colzy

Built in 1901 at Cape Byron, the lighthouse is situated at the most Easterly point of the Australian mainland. It is a beautiful building that has warned ships away from the headland for generations.

This point offers spectacular views in both directions and the paths in place offer visitors a beautiful walk right down to the waters edge. From late May to early October this is the perfect place for whale watching. I can't even remember the last time I didnt see dolphins frolicking off the coast at this point. Make sure you bring your camera along for some nice photo opportunities. Click on the pic and enlarge it to get a proper feel of the kind of landscape Cape Byron offers.

The Cape Byron Trust run tours of the lighthouse and can be contacted for details on +61 (0) 2 6685 8565.

Nimbim Museum

by leffe3

One of the weirdest museums you are probably ever likely to come across. In some ways its more like the worst kind of junk shop, with 'exhibits' piled everywhere - the concept seems to be rather than dump it, put it in the museum. But in a strange way, it works. Walls are papered with old newspapers, local newsletters, announcements etc: there's the ultimate 'alternative' cafe with the smell of the weed percolating above the ground coffee and even though there's free entry, the entrance has an 'alternative' foyer for helping you spend your money....:)

And as for the Hippy Wagon jutting out of what should be the shop front....

Welcome to Byron Bay

by ATXtraveler

"Australia's first Sunrise"

If you are ready for a unique travel experience, head to Australia's easternmost point, which occurs in Byron Bay in Upper NSW. Located a couple hours south of Queensland's Gold Coast, you can reach Byron Bay year round for a beautiful little beach community, and a wonderful waterfall.
