How to Spend 2 Days in Byron Bay

How to Spend 2 Days in Byron Bay

Spending two days in Byron Bay allows you lots of time to enjoy the area’s scenic beaches and head out on a variety of adventures. Get onto the water, or adopt a bird’s-eye view from the lookout point of a lighthouse or a hot air balloon. Here’s how to make the most of a 2-day stay in Byron Bay.  

Day 1: Make the Most of the Beaches

**Morning:**Start the day with a beachfront yoga session, or get into the Byron spirit with an overnight package that combines stretching with surfing. Whether you’re an aspiring or established yogi, you’ll find plenty of restorative options to strengthen and balance—a perfect way to prepare you for popping up on a surfboard to catch a wave.

**Afternoon:**Devote the afternoon to more fun in the sun. Shake out your sarong on the soft sands of Main Beach, or take a stroll over to the headland for a look at Cape Byron’s lighthouse, which overlooks Australia’s easternmost point. You can visit with a guide or rent a bike. 

**Night:**Soak up the evening sounds of wildlife on the waterways around Byron; the mangroves and marshlands are rich with native flora and fauna. You can toast the sunset on a cruise around Ballina Island and the Richmond River Nature Reserve, or paddle through on a kayak. 

Day 2: To the Hinterland

**Morning:**Rise early for a hot air balloon flight and see the sunrise from above. Cast your gaze over the coastline and the forested slopes Mount Warning (Wollumbin), which towers over Byron Bay’s hinterland. Rather stay grounded? Consider a guided tour of nearby towns like Bangalow, which is located in the Northern Rivers region. 

**Afternoon:**Most travelers are drawn to Byron Bay for its shoreline, but not far from the coast you’ll also find plunging waterfalls. Volcanic rocks create swimming holes around the rain forest just outside Nimbin, while Minyon Falls has a lookout that boasts views that stretch over the treetops all the way to the sea.

**Night:**By day it’s quite possible to find Australian wildlife, from kangaroos and wallabies to koalas feeding on eucalyptus. But you’ll want to set off after dark with a guide and a pair of special goggles to aid your night vision if you want to spot nocturnal marsupials like pademelon and bandicoot.
