The official whale watching season commences in a couple of weeks.  In late Autumn the whales begin their migration for the  winter to their breeding and calving grounds in the warmer waters, north as far as Harvey Bay, returning south during Spring.

Cape Byron is well known as one of the best vantage points, the Lighthouse offering the best view. The famous lighthouse walk is a two hour return adventure, known as “one of the best ways to spend a couple of hours on the States coast”, according to National Parks NSW.

The walk is a 3.7klm loop taking in views of Byron Bays stunning beaches, including Wategos, The Pass and Tallows Beach to the South. The hike will take you through rainforests and across cliff tops with stunning views out across the ocean and hinterland.

During the whale migration season make sure you allow extra time to take in the amazing sights of the humpback whales and also keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles.

For those who would prefer an easier walk you can park at one of the many stops and shorten the walk or alternatively parking is available at the Lighthouse for a small fee, but keep in mind it will be very busy during whale season.

If you are looking for accommodation in Byron Bay during the whale watching season look out for our Mid Week Special offers.

Amazing weather in the Byron Bay today.  If privacy is what your after take the lighthouse walk around to Little Wategos. Accessible only by foot this quiet and secluded beach sits at the foot of the lighthouse. North facing it’s protected making it the idyllic place to spend the day sunbathing and swimming. Low tide is the best time.

Byron’s unique laid back sophisticated style has strongly shaped a food experience signature to the town. Whether it’s wandering the farmers market sampling the fresh locally grown organic produce or sipping a crisp cocktail as the sun sets and a tropical breeze welcomes an evening of friends and world class contemporary dining.

One not to miss is the Byron Bay icon “The Top Shop”. Owners Andy and Charlie have paid homage to this history by taking the traditional Top Shop menu and bringing it into the now serving quality, fresh and healthy food. A new take on the old, enjoy a stroll down memory lane by lazing on the lawn after a morning surf, or share a table with locals and friends while sampling their infamous handmade sausage rolls, in-house baked sourdough and some say, the best coffee in town. Where: Corner of Carlyle & Massinger Streets

If the cafes are busy and you are staying at Atlantic Byron Bay remember you can always grab a take away and head back to enjoy one of the beautiful outdoor spaces and open kitchen areas…….guests only !
