Things to do in Byron Bay - Byron Bay YHA

Byron Bay has so many activities and trips to keep you busy throughout your stay.

Learn to surf, kayak with dolphins, go snorkelling or diving, jump out of a plane, watch whales off the coast (June-November), head up to the lighthouse for sunset or sunrise, head to the hippy town of Nimbin for a day, check out some local waterfalls or sit back and relax on the beach.

After a busy day out on the water and under the sun, head to one of Byron Bay’s famous bars such as The Beach Hotel, The Rails or The Northern for a cold one to unwind. There’s heaps of options for dining, such as Main Street Burger Bar, Legends Pizza and Miss Margarita’s. Still keen to head out? Head to Cheeky Monkey’s Backpacker Bar for some epic nights out and to Woody’s Surf Shack who do a surfboard giveaway every Wednesday night.
