“Cape Byron lighthouse is an iconic building that stands at the headland and can be seen for miles around. The best way to see the lighthouse is to access it via the Cape Byron walking track which will take you around the coast via The Pass and Wategoes, with a final ascent to the lighthouse. The walk takes about 45 minutes one way and there are a few steps to get there but the views are out of this world. Once at the top, you can spot dolphins, turtles and whales (in season from May - Oct). Take some money with you as the cafe at the top must have some of the best views in the area! You can also drive and park at the top of the lighthouse. You will have to pay for parking.”

“This beach is probably the most picturesque that Byron Bay has to offer. Its sheltered corners and aqua waters make it a sight to behold. You can access the beach by car or on foot via the Cape Byron walking trail. Be warned, it can get busy so we try and get there early to secure a good parking spot! ”

“Special night out? Look no further than St Elmo’s - amazing food, and a sophisticated and intimate atmosphere. The only drawback is snaring a table as, even on a quiet night, St Elmo’s is often booked out, so remember to book early. Whether you start at the bar or head straight to your table for some of the Bay’s best tapas, you‘re assured of a fantastic evening at this superb venue. REMEMBER: Put on your best holiday outfit and head to St Elmo’s for a night to remember! Open 7 nights a week from 5 pm st elmos byron bay ”
