This laid-back beach village has a marvellous mixture of cultures and lifestyles. The main pub, The Beach Hotel, is as hip as they come, having been recently rebuilt in earth-toned stucco brick and wood. For surfers, Byron's breaks are world class; and snorkelers and divers can explore a fascinating underwater world. There's a choice of restaurants that traverse the culinary globe; you can indulge in a shiatsu massage, a tarot reading or take time out in a Tai Chi class. Byron is also the place to watch whales and dolphins cruising up the coast, and seen from Cape Byron the most easterly point on the Australian mainland.
