Byron Bay

ARTS FACTORY LODGE $27/nightGreat vibe a bit hippy, you can choose to sleep in a tipi with a fireplace, coziest night I've spent ! During the day enjoy the beach, walk the Cape Byron walking track to lighthouse - I've seen some dolphins. Don't forget the sunset on the beach, musicians will be entertaining you !

Like I mentioned, this is a beach town with small cafes. Don't expect much but only keep one word in mind - CHILL.

Take a bus from Sydney to Byron. I think Byron invented hippies. Though it's now polluted with gap year students dropping their pants at the slightest hint of a beat, there are still hidden gems here that will warm the cockles of your heart. Recommendations here: 1. Holiday Village Backpackers (So we suggested this to some friends who went to Byron after us and they didn't listen and they now want to polish boots for the rest of their lives in repentance ) 2. Railway Bar They have local (primarily aboriginal) bands play here in the evenings and it's fantastic. There's old school music and often, you will find old happy uncles come up to you and do their little old school dance, or a group of ladies with their teenage hippie granddaughters, doing the twist.. it's such a happy place :) 3. Cheeky Monkeys Dancing on table tops. Guys stripping. Not pretty. But yeah, cheap dinner for backpackers starting 7Pm every night. 4. Take surf lessons. TAKE IT! Feed the sharks. 5. Hire a bicycle and ride up to the lighthouse.
