Byron’s beaches are like a dream come true, which sounds like a cliché until you experience them. If Australia does one thing really well, it has to be the beaches, and Byron’s are among the best in Australia. Stretching between the headlands of the northern New South Wales coast, many are sheltered from the southerlies and offer great surf breaks. Clean and undeveloped, the beaches are not overcrowded with highrises, or in fact with buildings of any sort.
