Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Surfing: This is the main reason you’re heading to Byron, right? It’s a surf haven! The three main surf spots include Main Beach, Belongil Beach and Tallow Beach. Main Beach is the closest to town.
Cape Byron Lighthouse: Did you know that this marks the most easterly point in all of Australia? It’s certainly worth a visit. We recommend renting a bicycle for the 30-minute road trip from town. There is also a 3.7km walk through rainforest and across clifftops.
Between June-November it’s likely that you will spot migrating humpback whales from the cliffs.
Nightlife: Is really big in Byron Bay town. There are clubs, pubs and live music events happening most nights, especially in high season.
