BOHEMIAN GETAWAY

...Byron Bay, Australia


Byron Bay

 

Located at the most easterly point of Australia, Byron Bay is the epitome of Australia’s laid-back surf culture. With perfect white sand beaches stretching out as far as the eye can see and crystal clear turquoise waters glistening in the sun, Byron is the paradise lifestyle you once only dreamt of. 

 

Friendly bare-footed locals and easy-going sun kissed travellers give off a welcoming energy that reigns you in to their world. The Byron Shire offers an alternative lifestyle that will force you to question why you ever lived the busy city-life waiting for you back home. 

 

Sleeping

Whether you’re looking for a luxurious villa, a Teepee in the hinterland or a true insight into Byron life through the wonder that is Airbnb, there is something for everyone. Surrounded by expansive rainforest, the Villas of Byron are tranquil upscale properties offering you the perfect paradise, “A Sanctuary for the Soul” in their words, and we find it easy to believe.
