Need to Know:
DO make sure you do the rounds of Byron — but while you're at it, take a detour and find yourself at The Farm. On a working farm, just 13 minutes from town, you'll find rolling hills looking out into the hinterland, farm animals, flowers and micro businesses. Be sure to book a table at award-winning paddock-to-plate restaurant Three Blue Ducks.
DON’T forget to visit Point Danger Lookout. On a perfect day you'll spot pods of dolphins and whales, and enjoy views all the way from Surfers Paradise to Byron Bay!
COUPLES WILL LOVE a wonderland of waterfalls along the Coffs Coast. Between Bellingen and Dorrigo, take the road less travelled (aka Waterfall Way) and you will find not one, but 13 stunning waterfalls.
