But first, you'll need to figure out how to get around.

Getting Around Byron Bay

In Byron, it's not so much how you get there as much as it is where you're going.

That's because this small coastal town has limited public transport options and only a single road in and out of town.
It's also home to some of the most beautiful places on Earth. But don't let that mislead you—Byron is not for the meek or weak-hearted. 

To travel from point A to point B in Byron can be challenging, but rest assured, with a little bit of planning and ingenuity, there are plenty of ways to get around without needing a car unless you want to leave the town. 

Here’s your guide on how to get around in Byron Bay:

1. By Foot

If you like the idea of having only your own two feet to get around, you'll love walking in Byron Bay. 

You can explore the streets of the town, take in the wonderful architecture, and admire the beautiful views. 

Be warned, however, that the town is spread out and walking from one area to another may be time-consuming.
If you decide to explore the town on foot, be aware that there are a few roads in Byron Bay without sidewalks, including Lennox Street and parts of Bay Street. Exercise caution when crossing these roads.

In addition, there are numerous hazards to be aware of, including uneven pavement, protruding manhole covers, and animals such as snakes and kangaroos.

2. By Scooter, Moped Or Motorcycle

Scooters are a popular way of getting around Byron Bay and for good reason.
