Picking a location within walking distance of the main hub and beaches should be priority number one. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible for such a popular destination during peak periods. Pre booking cabs and transfers are your best hope, while Uber uptake is growing every day.
Byron desperately wants to hold onto its hippy roots, so you’ll see plenty of scooters, bike riding and skateboarding around town too. Message being, be as active as you can be on a stinging hangover!
No need to overthink it, Byron is home to one of the best stretches of beaches in the world. You’re missing a trick if you’re not incorporating some sort of water activity into your Bucks party. Whether it be a surf lesson, SUP session or a paddle among the many sea creatures enjoying the warm water, give yourself an uppercut if this isn’t on your initial planning list.
For the fitness fanatics (or those that feel a bit guilty for what they ate and drank the previous day), the morning walk up to the Lighthouse is well worth the litre of sweat you’ll lose making it to the top. Take big breath of clean air as you stand at the most Easterly point of Australia.
There’s also a few beautiful golf courses in the area, whilst the Bowls club is one of our most requested activities. For good reason too; the team at Byron bowls are genuine chillers who love seeing everyone enjoying their experience. The kitchen pumps out some great feeds and the TAB facility within all make it s first class experience before you’ve even rolled a ball in anger.
Nimbin is still popular for those in touch with nature and fond of the odd doobie or hash cookie. If that’s your thing,The Bucks Co can provide a few transfer options that can take you out and back. Lennox Head is situated only 15 minutes from Byron, and is numero uno if you’re into your surfing; home to one of the best right-handers in Australia.
