Byron Bay – Australia’s easternmost point and one of the most famous small beach towns in Australia with approximately 5,000 inhabitants. From the lighthouse you can see the most beautiful sunsets, beloved by the surfers, backpackers and residents of Byron Bay. Due to the large and very long-drawn open bay with beautiful beaches there is an ideal paradise for surfers.
Hardly at any different place one encounters such a lively, interesting audience. Spirituals, surfers, backpackers, artists, families and travelers from all over the world gather here. Markets and festivals characterize this small place. At certain seasons the whales come by and dolphins are often seen. The environment, the so called “hinterland” with nice small places is a popular hiking destination because of its beautiful views.
