Chasing Waterfalls – Byron Shire

The ultimate summertime adventure in Aus – explore the crystal clear waterways of the Byron Shire region on foot, by car, or floating atop a lilo.

Pristine hidden beaches, 30m waterfalls, aqua blue rivers, and tea tree lakes all in one day? This is the perfect experience for lovers of water. While the foreshore of Byron Bay might be one of the most photographed beaches in the world, it’s but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the region’s stunning waterways. With the help of an expert local, head a little further from the centre and discover the Byron that many locals don’t even know about.

Be picked up from your hotel or be met at the airport to hit the ground running. Start your day with a fresh brew from a speciality coffee shop and share a few tastes and interests with your Localing host to help make the experience personal.

Head towards the Hinterland to see the Shire from the mountain tops, take in the spectacular views and get a wide perspective of the number one holiday destination in Australia. Marvel at the pristine waterways connecting the ocean to the mountain ranges, and breathe in the delightful clean air that comes with the territory.

Whether you’re after a hands-on action filled adventure or a more relaxing day, the tour can be tailored to whatever tickles your fancy on the day. You might choose to spend some time on a secluded beach, taking in the ocean air or work up a sweat with a paddle-board or kayaking experience along the rivers and lakes. Head into the rainforest and check out extraordinary waterfalls up to 30m tall, and enjoy a picnic full of fresh produce sourced from local markets.

Visit the marvelous river beaches where the rainforest meets the ocean along a spectacular river head, or venture to Broken Head where you’ll find untouched white sandy beaches, rockpools and hidden coves. Keep your eye out for dolphins and whales, too, which you may spot frollicking in the waves.

If you’re game, immerse yourself in one of the tea-tree stained lakes in the region, known for its incredible skin-soothing properties. The lakes derive their colour from the tea-tree oil that drops from the surrounding forest, and locals have been enjoying the benefits for decades.

As you travel back to your hotel, sit back and enjoy the gorgeous vistas of the ocean and the mountains – in this special part of the world, we won’t make you choose just one.
