There is the Great Barrier Reef, there is Sydney with its iconic Opera house and beautiful northern beaches and finally there is Byron Bay popularly known as the healing town.
Many world famous beaches embellish Australian landscape. So the temptation of rolling surf, turquoise waters and the white sand of Byron Bay may not be too enticing for some. However, what’s unique with Byron Bay is the Bohemian influence, open culture, beautiful natural ambiance along with healing and wellness programs. As a result, it is
the melting pot of many festivals, hub for artists, a vibrant center for gourmet food, unique shops and alternative health therapies.
Surrounded by protected nature reserves, marine parks and rain forests, Byron Bay is a nature lover’s paradise. Sights of dolphins and turtles are quite common while pods of humpback whales pass through the ocean during their migrations. Voted as one of the top 25 world sexiest beaches in Forbes Traveler website, Byron bay attract tourist of all ages. Nature conservation programs and eco-conscious council have made it possible for the national parks, rain-forest and ocean to perpetuate their splendor with variety of life and color.
It is a unique place where ocean meets the rain-forest. The lush forests, the cleanest of waterfalls and lakes, mystic mountains and pristine beaches reverberates a natural calm in the environment making it popular for its natural healing. The healing town got its name long time ago, from the Bundjalung aboriginals who used to come and still come to give birth to babies in this town. From aboriginals, to hippies with dreadlocks then surf culture and now as a celebrity destination, Byron bay has come a long way. Although urban sprawl is in full swing in Byron, it retains the laid-back ambiance with welcoming beaches and lush tropical landscapes.
Beautiful beaches allow fantastic opportunities for diving, snorkeling, and whale watching not to mention world famous surf. Plenty of tour operators offer airborne adventures that capture the panoramas of beautiful rain-forests, mountains and oceans. Luxurious health, spa and wellness retreats, unique film and art festivals and last but not least great local cafes invite tourists into a uniquely beautiful holiday.
