What You Can Expect
The first stop is the northern beach villages of Pottsville and Hastings Point before arriving at Cabarita Beach - a local mecca for surfers. Stop to stretch your legs and explore the headland with its unique coastal rainforest. Then travel to Bangalow, a charming historical town in the hinterland with trendy shops and cafes. You'll have plenty of time to browse the galleries and shops or to relax with a cup of coffee at a cafe.
Get a birds-eye view of Byron and the iconic lighthouse, as you drive across the mountains before reaching Byron Bay late in the morning. Your guide will give you an overview of the town you will have at least two hours at your leisure. Explore the township, take a swim at the beach or enjoy the stylish boutiques. Mid afternoon visit Cape Byron lighthouse and Watego’s Beach.
Later in the afternoon, travel back to the Gold Coast or Brisbane where your tour will end.
During the tour, you’ll also make stops for morning and afternoon tea (own expense).
The Springbrook National Park is very beautiful and the trip from there to Byron Bay was great and Byron Bay a lovely seaside resort and enjoyed the trip to the lighthouse very much, was a highlight.
It was basically just the bus driving us to the different villages, giving us a certain amount of time to look around which was not a lot but you did not learn anything about the region. Neither did we go to that national park nor did we do a guided lighthouse tour. So I was quite disappointed tbh
