Great surf, busy pubs and taste, healthy food. Byron Bay is one of the most interesting towns one may find in Australia. If you are planning on travelling to the town, you will be pleased to know that big car hire agencies such as: Avis, Hertz, Budget, Thrifty and Europcar are operating in the area.
What Can You Do in Byron Bay?
Keen surfers will be excited to check out Byron Main Beach, Watego’s Beach and Tallows Beach for some of the best surf on the North Coast of New South Wales. Load the surfboard on top of the car hire and get out there. Scuba enthusiasts will also be pleased, as Byron Bay gives divers a chance to check out some of New South Wales best dive spots.
If you’re a festival goer, big events like Splendour in the Grass during July is a must, or the Blues and Roots festival over the Easter Weekend offers up some of the best music from years past and present.
For the kids, why not take them whale watching out on the ocean, where they will have the chance to catch the whales in their natural habitat.
With such a big backpacker population, Byron Bay has a nightlife that can’t be beat, with nightclubs and pubs offering up fresh live music and a great local vibe.
Getting Out of Byron?
Why not make the most of your car hire and visit somewhere a bit further out. There’s the relaxed vibe of Bangalow, just 10 minutes away, or the crazy counterculture of Nimbin, the hippie centre of Australia.
Further still, you can head up to Murwillumbah to gaze at some of the beautiful waterfalls, or if you need a dose of city life, it’s only about 2 hours to Brisbane.
