Byron Bay reminds me of how a spanish resorts used to be in the 70's, A chilled, relaxing place. Livley at night but not as in youre face like Surfers. Ok no topless women like Spain but you can't have everything
Byron is famous for the large amount of hippies that moved in years ago before it became trendy. The influence can be seen in the shops around with models of VWs and loads of flower power souveners. I didnt see full Hippies only a few wannabees (chilling out this week, back to the office next week)
Byron is also a great place for Surfing, and particular para-surfing?,( a cross between pargliding and surfing), and tricycle bikes being pulled the wind via a sail attached, great fun.
There's a great cliffside walk around the bay to the lighthouse, (which can be seen from the beach) and back to the town. Whilst at the cliff top, you can watch the whales heading south from the view that is the most easterly part of Austrailia,
Byron is another great place to chill out away from the stress of city life. Relax, have a coffee, read a book and watch the day go....zzzzz
