    Favorite thing: This place has a really laid-back feel about it. Buskers every 50 metres or so, playing their tunes in hope of your spare change. Very tourist like - no pushbike helmets in site, people drinking alcohol on the main beach, people sleeping under trees, topless folk and their jubilant capering along the beach. Also, more hippies and unemployed people than I have ever seen in my life.

    Fondest memory: Having dinner at The Beach Hotel! The meal was great, well priced, and they even had XXXX, which is not the easiest beer to find once you leave Queensland...

    Typical Acommodation

    Favorite thing: The beaches along this coast are great.
    You can go surfing, fishing, or anything else that takes your fancy.
    Byron Bay is well known for Artists, Authors, Poets, and Musicians.
    They also host a 4 day "Blues & Roots Festival" over the Easter Holiday. What a wonderful time to visit Byron Bay..

    Fondest memory: Just the serene beauty of the place. You can holiday in high style here, or you can go camping, treking, mountain climbing,
    safaris to the outback, whatever makes you happy. Or just lay on the beach and enjoy.

    Fondest memory: Fondest Memory...perhaps not!

    Byron Bay's infrastructure is about 10 years behind the town itself. This means that the town can often struggle to keep up with the number of visitors and the tap-water seems to be the first casualty of this. When I visited the area was in quite a drought and the council had to pump water out of a nearby creek - the water was perfectly fine for drinking but it had the awful chlorine taste. My advice if to drink bottle water if you don't like the chlorine.

    Since we were staying for about 10 days we bought some 10 litre bottles from the local supermarket for about $4.

    Favorite thing: Built in 1901,the Byron Bay Lighthouse,is Cape Byron's crowning glory. It is fully automated,and the beam steadily pierces through 40km of darkness every night. There's a small museum few meters from the lighthouse. This is also the most easternly point on the Australian mainland.

    Favorite thing: The easternmost point on the Australian mainland; Jimmy! Not far from the Byron Bay Lighthouse to this point. Excellent place for spotting whales and dolphins.
