For years Byron Bay has clung to its bohemian credentials – despite being one of the most visited holiday destinations in Australia. It’s easy to see why: Byron’s stunning beaches, near-perfect weather and exciting, diverse eating scene are legendary for a reason.

No matter your plans, there’s never been a better – or more varied – crop of accommodation options. From rejuvenating retreats in the hinterlands to a beachside apartment designed by a beloved local fashion label, there’s a place in here for you.
