Byron Bay In A Day

Byron Bay is Australia’s soul to the sea. Golden sand, picturesque scenery, captivating down to earth people and whole fresh foods, summing up everything Australia has to offer in one location. Located 2 hours south of Brisbane, Byron makes for a perfect day trip or a great get away for the weekend. If you haven’t check it out, what are you waiting for? Here are my top picks for Byron Bay in a day!

Accommodation: Byron Beach Resort or Nomads Backpackers. If you’re looking for a couple of nights and don’t mind doing it on the cheap, check out hostels in Byron.

Beach: Main beach is where it’s at! Just follow the main road in town to the end and you’ll find sweet golden sand in your toes. Parking spots along the beach are paid parking metres, with inspectors circling in their cars waiting for offenders. Otherwise park a bit further away on Marvell Street for free.

The Light House: Follow the signs all the way up to the Byron Bay Light House, but be warned, if you drive there is a $7 parking fee, otherwise be environmentally friendly and walk the track from the beach up, it is a nice scenic walk for free.

The most eastern point in Australia!

Lunch: Byronian Cafe Byron Bay. I felt like a salad, he felt like a burger, bit of a contrast, so we couldn’t decide where to go. We stumbled across this little nook and sat in for a meal. Yum! The food was tasty, with a chilled out atmosphere.

Lamb Burger & Roast Pumpkin and Goats Cheese Salad 
Tasty Treats: Naked Treaties. Raw, vegan, cane, gluten and dairy free; perfection. Check out this place for a morning pick-me-up or afternoon delight, with a range of smoothies, juices, lunch and dessert options. You don’t need to be health conscious, you just need an appreciation of good quality food made by hand, straight from the heart. 
I took a meat-n-three-veg kind of guy here, who was slightly sceptical of what he thought was ‘non-conventional’ foods, and he loved it – isn’t that proof that anyone will!? 
Naked Treaties put their heart and soul into the food they make, truly reflecting the nature of Byron Bay.

Raw Jaffa Tart & Raw Tiramisu.
Close your eyes and say YUM and you’d never know the difference!

Drinks: The Balcony Bar & Restaurant. Perfect for an afternoon cocktail. They looked so delicious, I was salivating and green with envy just walking past seeing people sip on their cocktails at 1pm in the afternoon, it’s never too early in Byron!
