I can’t tell you how many times I have heard backpackers say their favourite place in Australia is Byron Bay. With its chill vibes, beautiful beaches and fun little party scene, it’s easy to see why people get stuck in this little town. Byron Bay is the most eastern town of Australia. This beautiful seaside town is a melting pot of alternative life style and Aussie surf culture. As soon as you arrive you’ll understand why this is one of the most popular destinations in Australia. If traveling to Byron Bay from Sydney (or in the other direction), I suggest getting an overnight Greyhound or Premier bus.
