“Byron Bay is one of Australia’s most famous beach locations and a popular destination with surfers and tourists, with the town and main street located right behind the beach. The town had its origins in the 1860s when timber cut on the forested slopes of Cape Byron was hauled to the beach and floated out to ships. The town and tourism took off with the construction of the jetty in 1888 and the opening on the railway to Lismore in 1894. Ever since, the waters around the cape have been a popular holiday destination. The town encroached so much on the beach that a seawall has been built to protect a number of facilities from wave erosion, including a full-size Olympic swimming pool.The Byron Bay SLSC, located at Main Beach (NSW 13), is the second oldest club north of Sydney and one of the oldest in Australia having been formed in 1907. The main street runs in lee of the seawall, terminating at a beachfront large car park, with a grassy park and picnic area running south to the Surf Club and beyond, and additional parking behind. A beachfront caravan park and more parking and amenities are located at Clarks Beach. Finally at The Pass a car park and boat launching ramp is provided (Fig. 4.15).Most waves reaching the beach have to refract around Cape Byron resulting in a decrease in wave height toward the Cape and generally less hazardous swimming conditions. The lower waves produce a wide attached bar occasionally cut by skewed rips. The rips (when present) and longshore currents usually sweep to the north along Main Beach toward the seawall, where they turn and run seaward. So the best swimming is south of the wall and between the flags. In the 3 km sweep between the seawall and The Pass the beach curves round to face the north then northeast. The waves are relatively low and the beach along Clarks and The Pass is usually fronted by a wide, shallow attached bar with few rips. However an additional hazard is present in the form of pulses of sand (sand waves) that periodically move around Cape Byron and along past Fishermans Lookout to form long, elongate sand bars and backing troughs or lagoons sweeping along toward Main Beach. In addition waves refracting around Cape Byron tend to run almost at right angles along The Pass. These produce the surf for which it is internationally famous. However for the unwary swimmer these waves produce strong longshore drift along the beach. ”

“Suffolk Park From the point adjacent to Jarman Street in Suffolk Park, walk north towards the boundary of Arakwal National Park. This is about as near as you can get to a National park with your dog. ”

“You’ll need a good two hours to properly experience the Cape Byron walking track – but it’s so rich in delights, so don’t be surprised if you reach the end and feel like doing it all again. In fact, it’s one of the best ways to spend a couple of hours on the state’s entire coast. The 3.7km loop leads you on a hike through rainforest and across clifftops with stunning views of the ocean and hinterland. En route you’ll wander through the shade of bangalow palms and ancient burrawangs, across kangaroo grasslands, along picturesque beaches and up to Cape Byron Lighthouse. Remember to keep an eye out on the water for turtles, dolphins, stingrays and, in season, whales. If you’d prefer an easier walk, the track can be accessed at numerous points and walked in shorter sections.”

“Great walk/running tracks to enjoy and test your fitness. The views are amazing and if you time your visit you can experience the whale migration. Also a great for viewing other marine life as well - pending weather conditions. The crashing sounds of the waves and the bird calls take you to another place of calm and relaxation away from the hassle of everyday life. A great place to explore.”

“As I'm into birdwatching, ask me about the wetlands. It is not open every day to the public but if you are the odd nerdy type who loves looking through your binoculars, let me know and I will see what I can arrange. ”

“A beautiful board walk through Melaleuca forest. The board walk is not long (about 300m), but you really get a immersive wetland experience. You can access the board walk behind the Butler St Reserve.”

“Belongil Beach is the place to be if you are wanting to see the sun rise over the ocean. This beach is quieter than Byron Bay main beach but just as beautiful. Here you will find surfing, yoga, bootcamp, fishing and plenty of photographers as it really is a sight to behold. ”

“A great walk especially on a windy day. It is common to see wallabies as well as exotic birds. The ti tree lake at the end of the track is shallow, smooth and silky. A great place to swim on a hot, windy afternoon. Walk back via the beach - 40 minute round trip.”
