It’s no surprise Byron Bay, NSW, has incredible surf and sand: Its cape is the easternmost point in all of mainland Australia. When you’re done pulling a “King of the World” Titanic scene at Cape Byron lighthouse, roll out to the beaches and beyond. There’s plenty to explore on Byron Bay holidays.
The north and east sides of town are lined with beaches—and you can explore them all in your Byron Bay car rental. Get the “main” idea at Main Beach, one of the town’s most popular (as you can probably tell from the name).
Make your way east to watch surfers at The Wreck—don’t worry, it’s not named after the surfers who wiped out here. At low tide, you can catch a glimpse of the shipwreck it is named for.
Next up, explore the tide pools of Clarkes Beach before winding down in a cafe in Palm Valley Park. If you’re not ready to pack it in quite yet, head out on the water in a kayak or paddleboard. Who needs Byron Bay car rentals, anyway?
Well, you do, actually. You’ve got a “golden” opportunity just 90km north. You’ll definitely be glad you booked one of Wotif’s great Byron Bay car hire options when you’re shouting “Surf’s up” and partying down in Gold Coast!
See if you can touch the sky at the SkyPoint Observation Deck, then get your head out of the clouds and into a pint along The Esplanade in Surfers Paradise.
