Immerse yourself in nature
What’s so special about the Byron area?
One of the most bio-diverse regions in Australia, rivaling the wet tropics. But popular, with 3 Million tourists a year, placing pressure on conservation values that make this region so terrific.
Enjoying life in the Byron Shire usually involves immersing yourself in some part of the community. We are a diverse, vibrant assemblage of people, and visitors welcome. We are First Nations families, generational settler families, sea and tree changers and even newer folks. Known for its green approach to living, from forest to foreshore, the region offers many avenues to get involved.
