Crystal Castle and Shambhala Gardens
You will find plenty of photo opportunities as you wander through the stunning Shambhala Gardens and rainforest. Home of the world’s largest and exquisite crystals, The Crystal Castle provides a natural playground to immerse yourself in. Make sure to grab a snap alongside the World’s tallest Crystal Guardians, standing at a breathtaking 5.5 metres. Once inside the Castle Grounds you will encounter the enchanting Shambhala Gardens, follow the path along the famous Buddha Walk and you will find unusual subtropical plants and the labyrinth.

Cape Byron Lighthouse
The Cape Byron Lighthouse is one of Byron Bay’s most iconic destinations, sitting on Australia’s most easterly point. You’ll enjoy some of the best views of the ocean and if you’re lucky you might even catch a sighting of turtles, dolphins and humpback whales. Make sure to visit before sunrise to catch the most magical light over Byron!
Broken Head Nature Reserve
Only ten minutes south of Byron Bay, Broken Head Nature Reserve provides you with several photo ops of Australia’s most pristine beaches. Follow the walking track taking you from the beachfront holiday park, through the rainforest, and then trailing around the cliff top before delivering you at the enchanting Three Sisters Lookout. Definitely worth a visit to take a couple of snaps!

By far the most popular and accessible beach from the town, Main Beach is the best place to go to enjoy white sand and calm clear waters. Pick your spot on the sand and soak up the vibrant and colourful atmosphere. Make sure to visit during sunset and you will find yourself taking postcard-worthy snaps!
You can’t visit Byron Bay without treating yourself to the sight of the most spectacular waterfalls in Dalwood Falls. It is a short drive to Alstonville through the little town of Ballina but remember to take a camera as it is an extremely scenic drive! Dalwood Falls is home to natural swimming holes, open calm waterfalls and rocks to sun bake on.
