13 Best Byron Bay Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Located about halfway between the Gold Coast and Coffs Harbour, Byron Bay is a surfers’ heaven – one of the best surfing areas in Australia. Belongil Beach, Wategos Beach, Tallows Beach and The Wreck are all great places to catch surf in the right conditions. Diving on the SS Wollongbar, the Wreck mentioned above, is also popular.

For a less energetic outing, take a trip into the Hinderland. Visit Mt Warning, the highest peak in the area, and see the spectacular Minyon Falls.
