Byron Bay is a beautiful beach town on the far north NSW coast. It’s a great spot for families as long as you’re, like, max one hour flight away. Any more than that is just not worth the effort.
The locals are relaxed and friendly; the sort of free spirits that’ll only stare at you if your kids reach next-level feral.
The climate is really fucking hot so if you’ve got a new baby or a redhead you’re going to need to be ok with spending your holiday seeking cool, dark spots. Like a vampire.
The Byron Ballina Shire has countless beachside properties from which to choose, each with curtains more sheer than the last. This will guarantee your children won’t go to sleep until 9pm and will wake at precisely 5.24am to maximise the holiday fun.
This will also ensure they are sufficiently exhausted during the day so you can see the sights to the never-ending soundtrack of that whiny/ whimpering/ nagging/ tired cry until you cave and give them something sugary just so they’ll perk up (i.e. shut the fuck up). Great times!
