Byron Bay and North Coast

The Ultimate Guide

The laid-back coastal region of NSW

Stretching along the northern region of NSW, the North Coast is a melting pot of surfing hotpots, family-friendly beaches, sleepy towns and national parks. It encompasses everything from the legendary Pacific Coast drive to the beautiful Coffs Harbour and its iconic Big Banana, though perhaps its most famous town is Byron Bay.

This hippie town has fast gained itself a reputation for being a surfer's paradise and a festival punter's dream. Blessed by near perpetual sunshine, its beaches are a mix of family-friendly waters and challenging surf and its cuisine has been hailed as some of the freshest and most innovative in the state.

So take a load off, browse the arts markets, listen to some live tunes, or let your hair down at one of its many acclaimed festivals.

Then, continue the drive to discover the rest of what the North Coast has to offer.
