Byron Bay Things to Do: 66 reviews and 114 photos

Approximately 25kms south of Byron Bay is Ballina, a fairly large town that serves the area as well as a place for low-key tourism. Like many of the towns on this coast, it is built at the mouth of a river and therefore offers coastal and river beaches and waterfronts. The Pacific Highway cuts through it and as such offers a wide-range of accommodation and services. The beach here runs north from Ballina to Byron, broken by dramatic headlands and rocky outcrops.

There's also a small airport at Ballina, serviced by Virgin Blue, which makes it a great 'entry point' for this part of the coast.
