While we’ve got an abundance of incredible beaches perfect for your next sunny sojourn, if you’re looking for the ultimate weekender, then it doesn’t get much better than Byron Bay. Hey, if it’s good enough for Chris Hemsworth and Zac Efron, it’s good enough for us.
But because it’s such a popular spot, filled with so many awesome things to do, we thought we’d curate the perfect trip to take the pressure off.
Which is why we’ve teamed up with our mates at Intrepid Travel and our sister site, Heydays, to bring you four blissful nights in NSW’s stunning Northern Rivers region.
On this Urban List: Editor's Pick getaway you’ll hit pause on the hustle and bustle of your everyday life as you zen out in breathtaking Byron with sunrise yoga and meditation, before stretching your legs on a walk through the region's famous lush rainforests.
After all that fresh air and (mild) exercise you’re going to be hungry so you’ll be pleased to know next you’ll be filling your belly with mouth-watering local produce from a not-for-profit restaurant and B-Corp farm. So you can chow down knowing you’re also helping a good cause.
You’ll then continue the fun with a cocktail masterclass. The artisanal spirits here are distilled from ingredients sourced directly from a local family farm which we reckon makes it taste even better.
The rest of the trip will include eating your way around Byron’s incredible food scene, many beach swims, checking out the iconic Cape Byron lighthouse, markets and picnic lunches in jaw-dropping surroundings.
And each night you’ll put your feet up at a stunning hinterland homestead. Sunsets and wines here are a must.
Sounds pretty dreamy right? Tours kick off on Monday 30 November and run monthly into 2021 so get booking here to reserve your spot on this special experience.
