Spotlight on- The Old Church
By Lisa Monk

The hinterland around Byron Bay is truly God’s own country, with the lush pockets of rainforest, emerald green rolling countryside, fabulous beaches and access to the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay itself or quaint and historic villages like Bangalow. There are wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants, galleries and any number of artisan shops, with everything from saddles to crystals. So, why not stay somewhere that reflects the wonders around you? The Old Church at Newrybar, just near Bangalow, is a beautiful and historic church, built in 1911, that now pays homage to the wonders of this beautiful region, without losing the sense of serenity from its former life. The property has been lovingly restored over the last eight years and features polished floorboards throughout much ... Read more

Byron Bay
By Lisa Monk

Byron is one of those places that attracts almost everyone – because it offers something for everyone.  Once nothing more than a sleepy little surfing village, it has enjoyed a special place in the tourism world for some time now, as it manages to be a hippy haven, upmarket holiday retreat, shopping mecca, dining delight and more. These days Byron seems to be edging more towards the visitor with money to spend than the backpackers, but there is no doubt that all the market segments are catered for when it comes to accommodation and activities. As the eastern-most point on the Australian mainland, Byron commands magnificent views and also boasts a very rare north-facing beach at Watego’s.  Main Beach is a glorious stretch of sand, as is Tallow Beach, Broken Hea...

Byron Bay – the home of coastal chic
By Tourism NSW

Byron Bay is on the north coast of New South Wales, an hour’s flight from Sydney. It’s a “hot” destination, and was most recently noted as one of the world’s top 25 sexiest beaches by Forbes Traveller Magazine.

The town itself is a melting pot of cosmopolitan chic, alternative philosophies, beach culture and hedonistic indulgence that spreads into the surrounding towns and villages. There’s plenty on offer here from surfing and kayaking with dolphins to a family day at the beach, gourmet dining to fish and chips on the sand, from massages, mud-baths and meditation to cycling, skydiving and hang gliding.    It’s also shopping heaven – the...
