What's Around The Area

Adventure beckons in Byron! Whether you're surfing alongside dolphins, spotting turtles from your kayak, or the adventure spirit sky-diving above the , thrills are on the horizon. Prefer terra firma? The majestic national parks await with ancient forests and enchantmented waterfalls just a hike away.

Elevate your experience atop a mountain with breathtaking views, or find serenity in the tranquil countryside. Take a scenic drive through the vibrant Byron hinterland where quirky townships boast the finest brews and a kaleidoscope of culinary delights.


Join the local vibe at the weekly community and farmers markets—perfect spots for people-watching and scoring locally-sourced treasures.

Music lovers, rejoice! The local pubs offer cold craft beers and delectable eats to the tune of local bands. For a touch of bohemia, explore Mullumbimby, nestled beneath the grandeur of Mount Chincogan. This original '70s hippie haven is a treasure trove of organic shops, welcoming cafes, and a pub that's the talk of the town.

And for those seeking inner peace, a myriad of yoga, meditation, and healing experiences are abundant in the area, or for your own private session opt for a one of our expert local practitioners to visit you in your accommodation here at The Sanctuary.
