It is the easternmost point in mainland Australia with a breathtaking view. The walk to the Lighthouse is already stunning! It’s also a great option to be in contact with nature, catch a tide, and if you’re lucky and go at the right time, you might even see whales and dolphins from here. There is no way to go to Byron Bay and not visit the Lighthouse.

A wonderful hiking trail along the beach and the steep coast with magnificent views at the “most easterly point of the Australian mainland.” Past the lighthouse, you can also walk a bit through the tropical rainforest on the way back which is also highly recommended!

3. The Farm

A magical place that is worth visiting, not only for the quality of its meals but also for the surrounding project of planting and its production in a healthy and conscious way. It’s literally a farm where everything they cook is made with products grown right there. Surely a must experience!

4. Stone & Wood Brewery

Stone & Wood Brewery’s taproom is absolutely impressive. From the facade and the spacious interior, it also has approximately 10 options on tap, including some special/limited editions, and a tasting tray to try 5 of them. Furthermore, there are also a couple of food alternatives you must try.

A beach where you’ll find more surfers than families. Wategos is a very quiet beach and you can take some impressive photos. It can be visited on the way to the lighthouse. A nice and less crowded place than the main beach to swim in the waves and surf.
