Though now living in Sydney, our Founder and Creative Director is still often asked for his favourite things to do in his hometown of Byron. Here's his list for your next trip:
Wategoes beach - Pack your swimmers/towel/picnic and hang out under a Pandanus tree on the beach.
Lighthouse - Watch the sunrise from the lighthouse then walk the track back to Beach Byron Bay for breakfast overlooking the beach up to the Pass.
The Pass - Hire a longboard and catch some long cruisy waves at the pass.
Brunswick Heads - Soak in some rays at Torakina beach, jump off the bridge or hire a kayak from the pirate ship and paddle around on the river at high tide before an early dinner and some live music (check schedule) at the iconic Bruns pub.
Minyon Falls - Head to the lookout for an amazing panorama of the falls or walk to the base to enjoy a refreshing (aka cold) swim in the pool.
Woods - Coffee fix, then wander around Bangalow shopping village.
