When it comes to holidaying in Byron, families are spoilt for choice when selecting activities.
First stop is the beach, as no matter what the weather, kids are always happy swimming in the water & splashing in the waves. Having a boogie board can extend beach time ten fold! For those wishing to take it one step further, there are a number of Surf Schools to teach all ages & ability levels.
The top park at Main Beach is the perfect place for parents to enjoy their morning coffee, whilst the kids release some energy on the swings & climbing equipment.
There are a great number of shops, cafés & restaurants in town to suit all tastes. Mums can enjoy eclectic shopping, the kids can spend their pocket money & dads will be happy browsing the shops &/or waiting in a café with the newspaper!
The Markets can be found in Byron & its surrounding areas each weekend. They are in Byron on the first Sunday of every month and in Bangalow on the 4th Sunday of every month. There is a variety of entertainment, arts & crafts, funky clothing & food for all ages, definitely worth a visit.

Family activities are close at hand in the hinterland & surrounding areas.
