Could drop out of life and live in Byron forever! So relaxed, gorgeous walk to the most easterly point & lighthouse, saw whales etc. Cheeky monkeys in the evenings for $5 meals and cheap beer, play games for beer & awesome prizes, then dance the night away on the tables! Definitely take the day trip to Nimbin, the 'museum' is the wierdest place I've ever been, beware of creepy old lady offering acid & only have half a cookie ;-)!
Insider Tip:They have very recently introduced going up the Cape Byron light house, and it's FREE. Just go in and ask for your name to go on the list, they take 10 people up every 20mins or so until 4pm, very cool!
