Byron Bay is one of Australia’s most famous destinations.
It has been a magnet for people seeking alternative lifestyles
since the 60’s. The natural beauty of the beaches and
lush hinterland make it a perfect place to live in style and
warmth too. Surfing, yoga, shopping, clubbing, pubbing, dining,
diving - it's a place to do it all or have a
well deserved rest.
The local economy is based on tourism and agriculture. Home-based
businesses are booming with a bent on cultural and creativity
- no doubt fuelled by a thriving (and starving) population
