Byron Bay Hinterland
Nestled in the hills behind Australia’s most easterly town, Byron Bay, the sub-tropical Byron Hinterland offers visitors a diverse range of experiences.
Located just a one hour drive from the Gold Coast, a 15 minute drive from central Byron Bay and 25 minutes from Ballina, the Bryon Hinterland is where you will find everything from pristine rainforests and secluded waterfalls to quaint unspoilt villages unchanged since the turn of the century.
Some of the most popular villages include Bangalow, Alstonville, Billinudgel, The Channon, Mullumbimby and Clunes, all of which offer a range of gourmet eateries from fine dining restaurants to funky and eclectic cafes in unique locations. Many of these businesses place great emphasis on using the plentiful local produce of the region such as Bangalow pork, local coffee and nuts from local plantations.
The Byron Bay Hinterland and its many villages are also famous for their local markets that see thousands of people descend on the region each weekend to experience the vibrant atmosphere and unique outdoor shopping experience. You will find everything from delicious arrays of food, locally made art and craft as well as local entertainers and musicians performing throughout the day.
The Byron Hinterland is surrounded by an abundance of stunning natural attractions such as Minyon Falls, Whian Whian Forest, Rocky Creek Dam, Nightcap Ranges, Border Ranges and Mount Warning. A number of the parks in the region are members of the World Heritage Listed Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves with Mount Warning National Park being one of the most notable.
Mount Warning National Park is the remnant central plug of an ancient volcano with Mount Warning itself reaching 1100 metres. The climb to the summit offers a challenging walk through rainforest communities ending with amazing 360 degree views of the Tweed Valley and beyond.
The rich soils of the region also see plentiful produce farmed including bananas, avocados, soft fruits, lemon myrtle, blueberries, custard apples, lychees and coffee to name only a few. As you explore the Byron Hinterland by car you will find farms selling their fresh produce at road side stores.
