Head to the northernmost edge of New South Wales and be sure to make your last stop in the province at bohemian Byron Bay, famed for its surf culture and top beaches.
This seaside resort is a great place to take a surf lesson, particularly at the renowned nearby Lennox Head – which is a must-visit for those who already know how to ‘hang 10’ too! Those who prefer to stay dry could head out from the port on a whale watching boat trip or go sea kayaking alongside dolphins.
Australia’s easternmost town is also home to some excellent markets for picking up local souvenirs, and we recommend a sunrise amble up the Cape Byron Track to the town’s iconic lighthouse, followed by an afternoon of sunbathing on Main Beach. We can arrange a 4WD tour through the rainforest of Byron’s hinterland, with a stop at bohemian Nimbin, or how about a hike through the World Heritage-listed Mount Warning National Park, with its extinct volcano? For something truly unique, make time for a stop at the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens, home to the world’s tallest crystals.
