Byron Bay


Byron Bay is the eastern most point of the Australian mainland: the sun’s rays hit Byron Bay before any other place on the continent. The little town of Byron Bay is an artists colony with a large “alternative” community that attracts squadrons of backpackers and families each summer.


Surfers flock to the town as well for some of the best surfing in Australia. Wategos Beach and The Pass are two particularly good surf spots, each one on one side of Cape Byron so that the swell will break well on at least one of them. The Main Beach, its sandy shores stretching south over 50 kilometres (31 miles) has plenty of beach break, many ideal for beginners, and is safe for swimming. Byron Bay, a good place to spend a few day surfing and springboard to the neigtbouring Queensland and its faboulous surf spot on the Gold Coast, such as Surfers Paradise – the name says it all !


Holiday Coast


North of Sydney, the Pacific Highway runs over some 1,000 km. (620 miles) from Sydney to Brisbane, staying close to the coast most of the time. Along this coast, known as Australia’s Holiday Coast or New South Wales North Coast, you will find excellent beaches, most of them virtually deserted and with good surf breaks. Inland, the Great Dividing Range, which separates the wetter coastal plains from the dry interiors, throws up lush rain forests and tropical plantations – by the time you reach Coffs Harbour, famous for its banana plantations, the climate has turned subtropical.
