What You Can Expect

Byron Bay Day Trip from the Gold Coast

Byron Bay Day Trip from the Gold Coast

Home to numerous arts and music festivals, Byron Bay is known for its relaxed lifestyle and alternative vibe. Your full-day tour to this artistic enclave begins with pickup at your central Gold Coast hotel in a comfortable air-conditioned coach. Enjoy a scenic drive down the coast while your driver-guide narrates passing attractions.

Stretch your legs with a stop at the Byron Bay Lighthouse, built atop the rocky outcropping of Cape Byron in 1899. Climb the steps to the lighthouse base and enjoy the views from the easternmost point in Australia.

Continue on to the township of Byron Bay, where you’ll enjoy free time to explore the trendy, international scene on your own. Browse market stalls where vendors sell unique handmade items, pop into a beachside Aussie pub or stroll alongside the calm bay waters.

If you selected the lunch option at booking, enjoy a delicious meal at the Crystal Castle’s Lotus Café, where internationally inspired dishes are made with seasonal, organic produce and edible flowers grown from the on-site Shambhala Gardens. After your meal, you can explore Crystal Castle’s beautifully landscaped botanic and sculpture gardens.

On the way out of town, stop at Tropical Fruit World, a family-run farm that grows the world’s largest variety of tropical fruits. Browse piles of colorful produce at the market and purchase fruit-based treats like jams, sauces and natural skincare products if you wish (entrance to the market is free; admission to the park and tour additional expense).

After getting your fill of delicious fresh fruit, relax on the return drive to the Gold Coast, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This was a full day tour to Byron Bay. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Everything mentioned was covered with enough time to look around the Byron Bay town centre. Note, admission to the Tropic fruit work park is not included only access to the gift and fruit store. I would certainly recommend the tour and it was done at a relaxed pace

Best outing we did! Didn't get tour guide's name on Sunday, March 8, but he was great. Stopped at Snappers Rocks. Just beautiful! Then lighthouse. And finally Byron Bay. We were able to rent beach chairs and an umbrella and enjoy the beach for a little while. Lunch at the Balcony was vey good. A little shopping then it was time to head back. Fruit World was at the end of the season but our guide helped us to sample some of the interesting fruits. More of just a pit stop. Overall great day!

This tour is great! Pick up and drop off was smooth. Byron Bay is stunning! After visiting the famous lighthouse, we were given 3 hours of free time in the small town. Subsequently we were brought to tropical fruitworld for some fruits. Although the time given for each location is not long, but is sufficient. Driver is friendly, introducing the attraction from point to point. He even share with us some of his experience during the tour. thumbs up! :

A more direct route from Springbrook to Byron would allow time at Byron to enjoy lunch and the atmosphere without being so rushed.
