Byron Bay, with it’s distinctive Cape Byron, is the eastermost point of Australia, jutting out near the convergence of the Tasman and Coral seas. As a result, the cape picks up even the smallest swell and produces surfable waves virtually 365 days a year, on either the Byron Bay side or the southern Tallows side. Byron Bay itself, which begins with the series of waves that start at the northest tip of Cape Byron, includes Watego’s, The Pass, the beachies on the inside and Shipwrecks to the north. There are waves suitable for all levels and pretty much something for everyone. This vibe continues on shore and Byron Bay boasts a colorful array of people and personalities. You’ll find hippies straight outta the 60’s, new school surfers and everything in between. If you’re headed through northern NSW or staying on the Gold Coast, you should definitely stop in at Byron Bay.
