Having always lived approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes away from Byron Bay, I have never had a reasonable excuse for not going. I've heard people bang on about how great it is, so I figured it was about time I did something about been one of the only people amongst my friends and colleagues who had never been. Without much planning I booked what I could find and we headed down South for a little weekend getaway. Minus the unbelievable amounts of young teens and oddly smelling backpackers, I rather enjoyed the whole experience. By far some of the best beaches I have ever seen (and that's a big deal coming from what is considered the sunshine state) and some amazing scenery to go with them. There is nothing better then when the trees meet the water. Some exceptional dinning and food options, just to name one in particular, The Balcony Bar & Dinning is now going on my top 20 list of places I have dined in Australia and is a must do in Byron (there is a reason why it's booked out on Saturday nights). So if you are like me and have never bothered to venture as far as the QLD boarders, or you from far away lands looking for the true Australian experience. Make sure you put Byron Bay on your list of things to-do. We were very happy campers to say the least.
