Lots of bars and restaurants to choose from, although due to the vast numbers of tourists they are all busy - so be prepared to wait a while for drinks and up to over an hour to get a table at a lot...

Byron bay is obviously very well known & popular with the wealthy, tourists & hipsters & you can't blame them, I'm just too good with crowds & everywhere is busy! Being objective however, theres geat beaches, great bars & great resturants, just don't expect to park.

I have been going to Byron for many years and its great, no question, climate, beaches, location. But!!! Byron is faded. The main CBD has a great food and music culture that is unique in Aus.

We love Byron bay, the beautiful beaches the pristine clear waters, lovely atmosphere and delicious restaurants. We go back as often as we can. Try avoid peak holiday times as traffic and crowds can be crazy.

just an expensive hippy coastal town in NSW, some great views and beaches but the center is expensive and full of strange people. Mind you it's way better than Surfers, that's just a hole

While i have not been to Byron for 20yrs plus, i can say it has changed and so has the price expectations.

We arrived just after the Aus day weekend in February and this... More
