Located in an elevated position directly behind Australia’s most easterly town, Byron Bay, the Byron Hinterland literally offers something for everyone.
The sub-tropical Byron Bay Hinterland is where you can experience everything from lush conserved rainforests, crystal clear waterfalls, waterholes and creeks to breathtaking lookout points and quaint villages – all within easy driving distance of the stunning Byron Bay beaches.
Some of the most popular villages include Alstonville, Bangalow, Billinudgel, The Channon, Clunes, Crabbes Creek, Eltham, Mooball, Mullumbimby, Newrybar, Rosebank, Stokers Siding and of course Federal. These villages are also famous for their popular local farmer and artisan markets held almost every day somewhere in the region. There you’ll find almost everything, including ultra-fresh produce and food, locally created art and craft against a backdrop of performances from aspiring musicians. Famed for its rich soils and optimal growing conditions, the area also boasts many farms selling fresh produce directly from their own roadside stalls.
Driving around the area, you will come across a range of eating establishments from fine dining restaurants to eclectic cafes and gastro pubs – many of which pride themselves on using the plentiful local produce of the region, such as organic exotic fruit and vegetables, Bangalow pork, as well as coffee, tea and nuts from local plantations.
The Hinterland is surrounded by stunning natural attractions such as Minyon Falls, Whian Whian Forest, Rocky Creek Dam, Nightcap Ranges, Border Ranges and Mount Warning. A number of the parks in the region are members of the World Heritage Listed Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves, home to an abundance of native wildlife including koalas, echidnas, wallabies, flying foxes, kangaroos, various reptiles as well as birdlife such as cockatoos, rosellas, lorikeets, rainbow bee eaters, fairy wrens, kookaburras, kingfishers and kites.
