Bush walk through the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland, swim in Minyon Falls - the highest waterfall in the region - and have the chance to kayak alongside dolphins, whales and turtles.
The coastal town of Byron Bay – in New South Wales – is a magnet for anyone looking to press escape. And, with year-round blue skies, warm waters and lush hinterland, is it any wonder that it attracts visitors from far and wide? This is your chance to explore this must-visit holiday spot in a fun way.
Your day starts with a four-kilometre return bushwalk through the sub-tropical rainforest of World Heritage-listed Nightcap National Park. Through the rainforest, you’ll make your way through the jaw-dropping Minyon Falls – a 100-metre waterfall flowing into Repentance Creek. The cliffs over which it finds its way down were, once upon a time, part of the Tweed Volcano. Here, you can take a dip in the cooling waters or relax fall side as you tuck in to the BBQ lunch provided.
Walk completed, you’ll head for the sea to paddle your way along Byron’s coast via kayak. You’ll see the famous lighthouse – Australia’s most Easterly point – and, with any luck, the dolphins, turtles and sometimes even whales who call this stretch of coast home. An experience not to be missed.
