EXPLORE

Helicopter

On your next visit to Byron Bay we encourage you to explore the local region and discover some of the National Parks and Reserves.

ARAKWAL NATIONAL PARK
A gift to the visitors of Byron looking to escape the buzz of the popular town, this breathtaking stretch of secluded sands bordered by 183 hectares of rich coastal heath is a haven for migratory birds and wildlife. A historic agreement between the NSW government and the Arakwal community, the park is an important part of Aboriginal culture. Co-managed by the traditional owners, experience the meandering pathways that link the township of Byron Bay to the Pacific Ocean and marine life that call it home.

BROKEN HEAD NATURE RESERVE
This rare coastal rainforest is home to the sights and sounds of the Aussie scrub. Banksias and tuckeroos shield the rainforest from the salty onshore winds and hardy brush box and native elm flourish amongst bangalow palms. The loud whip-crack of the eastern whip bird is unmistakable as is the mournful cry of the koel ringing eerily in the gullies. Rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to secluded beaches where white breasted sea eagles and brahminy kites plunge to the sea.

Byron Bay is the gateway to some of the most magnificent natural creations. If you are a lover of nature, an explorer of life and a straight up adventurer you will loose yourself in these incredible untouched and protected habitats.
