Things we love to do in the Byron Bay region

We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world. To have the opportunity to visit to explore pristine rain forest or scuba dive with manta rays, there’s always something incredible to do each day. Some weekends we just want to be pampered and others we seek adventure and it’s all at our finger tips! These are just a few of our favourite things to do:



    • Drink Cocktails at Raes on Wategos whilst watching the sun go down over Mount Chincoghan
