A beach-lover’s paradise: Discover the perfect Byron Bay accommodation

Byron Bay. It’s a name that evokes memorable times and places for everyone who visits. Back in the late 1960s, the region was discovered by surfers and then lovingly embraced by the Flower Power generation of hippies – most of them escaping regimented lives in the city. That rebellious, fun-seeking vibe still lingers in the hills and shores but it now has an incredible range of boutique and luxury accommodation, plus places to eat and shop.

The whole Byron Bay area has become a magnet for artists, musicians and writers – and their fans. One of Australia’s best-known crowd-pullers for musicians and music lovers alike is The East Coast Blues & Roots Music Festival at Byron each Easter. This extraordinary spectacle draws talent from around the world, ranging from Grace Jones and BB King to Trombone Shorty and The Cat Empire. The town loves its music and there are plenty of places to drink and listen all year-round, such as the Byron Bay Brewery and Buddha Bar. The Byron Bay Writers Festival in August is a great place to hear your favourite authors and collect autographs.

The region’s beautiful beaches, perfect waves and soft, warm sand help to keep holiday-makers happy over the long summer months. For those who seek Byron Bay accommodation close to the buzz but not right in the middle, Suffolk Park to the south is a quiet little village with some fabulous beaches. Settle in here for some 1960s seaside holiday ambience. Brunswick Heads is equally relaxed as it sprawls along its pretty river estuary and beachfront. Torakina Beach has placid waters to paddle in for families with young kids.

Newrybar offers a glorious prospect over the plains to the sea and has the very chic Harvest Cafe for grazing or long, lingering meals. Try one of their Naked Native cocktails to quench your thirst.

Ballina is a brilliant town for those who are seeking a quieter vibe than there is in busy Byron. Nearby Lennox Head has a surf break that draws surfers from around the world (and they are sometimes joined in the waves by local dolphins).
