Byron Bay is the most easterly point of Australia. It juts right out. Good for surfing as it catches most swells and has protected corners on all conditions. About 9,000 people live in Byron, plenty doing the sea or tree change from Bondi. This little town attracts 1.5 million visitors a year – yes – it’s popular!
The area has a very relaxed vibe. Everyone’s pretty happy about – well – everything. The are so many beaches up here that are empty. I see plenty of unridden waves. Especially post schoolies. Great place to chill.
