Byron and Surroundings
Byron Bay is known for its eclectic mix of surfers, hippies, and a vibrant international crowd. Its laid-back vibe is what Australian beach towns are famous for; full of trendy restaurants and cafés, live music venues, and plenty of spots for bushwalking, surfing, swimming and snorkelling.
Located on the north coast of NSW, about a day's drive from Sydney and a couple of hours from Brisbane, Byron is the most easterly point of the Australian mainland. The town itself has only a small population of 5,000, often boasted by the hoards of foreign backpackers that flock to the surfing mecca.
The famous natural breaks at The Pass are a magnet for longboarders, whereas Main Beach is the most popular swimming spot. Cape Byron and the Arkawal National Park offer untouched hiking trails, where you can often spots whales at pods of dolphins close to shore.
Byron Bay is also home to several music and arts festivals, such as the annual Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival. There are also several yoga retreats, a weekly farmer's market, and regular artisan markets.
Whether you're a north coast local or looking for the authentic Australian beach town experience, Byron Bay is the perfect, chilled-out place to spend a month or six weeks training how to teach English.
