      Byron Bay to Sydney in 5 days :)

      by ElisabettaF Online Now May 7, 2014 at 12:27 PM

      Hello guys!

      I have 23 years and I'm Italian. Today my boss told me that in July I come in Melbourne for work! I have the possibility to stay for 1 week of vacation! :)

      I decided/ thought to fly in Ballina, Byron Bay, where I spend 1 week end, I will be with my friend (she will be with me, only the week end). I would travel (Backpacking and cheap) from BYRON BAY to SYDNEY in 4/5 days. I would like arrive at Sydney in the midmorning of Friday (it will be ideal)!

      I like much to stay in contact with the nature and to know the really of the country/city/village. I am not type of party with the heel, but I prefer do juggling around the fire :)

      Do you have advice or suggestion? What do you do or not? How to get around?What airline / train / bus?

      The questions that you think you would do well in my place, having discovered now of it, I'm super curious to know as much as possible! :)

      Thank you again!

      Should I rent a campervan or not?

      by miczngrz Online Now Apr 15, 2014 at 6:19 PM

      I'm going to Byron Bay for the Easter weekend, now I can't decide if I should rent a campervan or not? I am going to watch Bluesfest [] but most of the campsites are sold out. I read this blog that mentioned the bluesfest [] so i decided to check out their list of campervans, now I am not sure if it is a wise idea to hire one or just book a hotel. However, I know that most hotels are quite far from the venue. Can anyone help me decide?

    • Good cheap accommodation & Seafood?

      by helpcan Online Now Dec 28, 2010 at 2:03 PM

      I'm visiting with my girlfriend in Jan - actually set to stay at broadbeach for 7 nights but I'm thinking about changing so we have a few nights in Byron Bay.

      Can anyone suggest a place that's clean, nice, not too expensive and possibly near the beach or fairly central?

      I'd also love to hear about where the best spots for eating fresh seafood are? either markets or restaurants/cafes etc.

      Thanks !!

People tell us that it's not a problem to find a place this time of year. Where would I find this info? All the accomodations listed on are short term luxury stuff. Can someone please help?!?!

      Hi all,
      I am going to be in Byron Bay for the summer period, and have already booked a place to stay in a hostel. However, as I am there for a few months, I don't really want to be paying high prices for a dorm the whole time, and would like to rent somewhere - house or unit I don't really mind. Does anyone know of where places are advertised?

If not these, is there any other suggestions for similar rate clean rooms? I am traveling on my own and in my late 30's so not looking to share and want a quieter place without a lot of partying.

    • Buying a van or motorhome!

      by denetarik Online Now Jan 8, 2007 at 7:48 AM

      Hello! this is more general question about Australia than Byron Bay, but here it goes my question: I ´ve heard that many tourists buy a van or motorhome, they run the coast for some months, and then they sell it to another tourists. I´m planning something like this, but, how many can it cost? More or less.

      Thank you very much!!

      Best Places To Stay In Byron

      by jeffa79 Online Now Nov 3, 2006 at 3:03 AM

      My girlfriend and I are spending about 6 nights in Byron in early-mid December and are looking for suggestions on good places to stay in the area, well located and not too expensive (we are travelling for around a month so budget is pretty important).

      Any suggestions on budget hotels for the area? Ideally we would be looking to pay around AUS$130-150 per night but obviously this would change depending on what we could get.

      Please advise us on the best places to stay in the area.

      Many thanks,

      Splendour Accomm - Spare Driveway Anybody??

      by beclee78 Online Now Jun 4, 2006 at 11:31 PM

      Hello all Byron Bayers!..

      I am heading to Splendour in the Grass this july (22/23) and need to find accommodation!.. since hearing there is nothing available in Byron for rent, we (5 lovely friendly late-twenties ladies) are going to hire a campervan and drive up from sydney.. so all we need is somewhere to park our van in Byron.. we will be fully self-contained (we have water, toilet, shower, waste, kitchen onboard) and promise to be friendly and quiet neighbours.. so if you will let us park in your driveway/front yard for 3-4 days, we will reward you handsomely ($$) for your kindness!

      Please reply or email me at

      Any information on other accommodation options is appreciated as well!

    • Is Byron a good destination with children

      by Lucyn Online Now May 11, 2006 at 5:52 AM

      We're out in Australia for 6 weeks this July and August, 5 weeks working in Sydney and then a week free in August. We're thinking about flying up to Byron for a week, but I'm wondering if it's a good place to stay with children - ours are aged 9 and 3. We're looking for somewhere with some sunshine but don't want to go to the far north as we visited there on our last trip. Hoping to find somewhere pretty and laid back, with plenty of opportunities for cafes and people watching, walking and beach days. Some yoga for me would be good too! Does Byron still fit that profile or is it overdeveloped now? Any comments welcome, especially if anyone out there has any other destinations you'd recommend.
      Thank you

    • Driving from Sydney to Byron Bay

      by noazy Online Now Jan 22, 2006 at 7:46 PM

      Hi there
      My boyfriend and I are planning a 1 week trip to Byron Bay in mid February. We are tossing up between driving (and staying a night at the beginning and end in Port Macquarie) or flying (and spending an extra two nights in Byron).
      I would love some feedback as to whether the drive up to Byron is worthwhile. Is there much to see and what is the best route to take ? Any little tips would be great if you think that the road trip is a good idea... (ie places of interest, cafes/towns to stop at)

      Hostels in Byron Bay..

      by Jasminerose Online Now Oct 29, 2005 at 3:08 AM

      Hiya all,

      I have enjoyed a great week in Sydney but am arriving in Byron Bay on Monday.
      I am looking forward to enjoying the beautiful landscape that I have heard so much about. Also have heard this may be a good place to do a 'Yoga Instructors' course, is this so? But essentially I would like some recommendations on a clean and quiet hostel, and the cheapest one possible ? I have been paying24 dollars p/night for a 10 bed dorm in Sydney and looking to reduce costs if poss. but still have a clean and safe place. I am arriving in to Ballina Airport, is there a particular shuttle bus I should get to the main beach? Sorry for all the questions : ) it is my first time to Australia, and this site is proving to be wonderful help. * cheers all.
