Byron Bay Things to Do: 66 reviews and 114 photos

Every Sunday there is a market held in the Nothern Rivers Region - the town of the market rotates each week and you will need to check where the market is on (best place is to go to the Tourist Info centre near the railway station).

The markets were on at Byron when we went and the stalls are wide and varied from local producers selling honey, passionfruit, bananas, vegetables etc to art and craft stalls with some pretty innovative pieces, to the 'white elephant' jumble stalls and the "string-your-own-beads" places for the kids and kids-at -heart!

A must-do is to purchase a fresh sugar-can and ginger juice - the stall owners have a mangle kind of device and the feed the raw dugar can through and collect the juice which they then add ginger essence to and lots of ice - YUM!

Directions: Byron Bay - from town walk across the railway line at the crossings near the station. The markets are on the oval about 50 metres from where you crossed over (just follow the crowds!)
