The 11 best things to do in Byron Bay

Looking for great things to do in Byron Bay? For better or worse, this a coastal town in northern New South Wales has entirely completed its transformation from hippy town to boho-luxe getaway destination. But while Byron Bay’s town centre has succumbed to a backpackers-meet-the-one-per-cent influx, the lifetime fire twirlers and queer communes haven’t been completely expunged from the Byron Bay region. Casual dining standards in the region have also hit the stratosphere, spearheaded mostly by established players in the Sydney hospitality scene heading north for sea and tree changes. For their efforts alone, the region is worth a visit. And while the infrastructure has changed, the natural environment remains pristine. Done something on this list and loved it?
