A beautiful and natural day trip
After a 30 minute walk of views of Byron's beautiful beaches, we were standing on the most easterly point of mainland Australia with stunning views of Cape Byron. An amazing day trip to see Byron Bay and a few sightings of whales, dolphins and turtles on the walk.
A bit of history behind the name - Cape Byron was named when Captain James Cook passed the area in May 1770 and named it after famous famous globe-trotter John Byron. The most easterly point is located near the Byron Bay lighthouse, a short drive from the main streets of Byron. For day trippers there is the choice to do a thirty minute walk from Byron's main beach to the lighthouse or there is parking (paid) located close to the point.
There is a cosy little cafe near the lighthouse where you can grab a bite to eat or a coffee. To reach the most easterly point there is a multitude of beautiful walks among nature and flowers that are all wheelchair friendly and bicycles can also use the tracks. So why not hire a bike or take a ride along some of the most beautiful coastline I've ever seen?
