Make no mistake, this coastal town is rejuvenation central. With its smart surroundings, farmers' markets and fine-dining restaurants, Kingscliff is a little bit chic, but in a good way. Whether you're surfing the breaks, hiking out in the national parks, or just getting stuck into a book on the beach, it's the kind of place where you can do as little or as much as you fancy.

Things to do

The totally tropical taste of Kingscliff

Ever worry that you're not getting your 5-a-day? Well, Kingscliff vacation rentals have the solution, in the form of Tropical Fruit World. With 9 gardens and more than 500 kinds of fruit, this unconventional attraction (formerly known as Avocadoland) offers everything from tours and fruit tastings to boat cruises and a petting zoo. And Kingscliff's a great base for excursions. The iconic surf town of Byron Bay is just 45 minutes by car, while if you like your fun seriously intrepid, then you might want to take a trip to Wollumbin National Park, home to the famous peak of Mount Warning.

Activities

With waves like these, you'll be standing up in no time

With Kingscliff vacation rentals, it's all about the life aquatic. Surfers come from far and wide to ride the breaks round here, and if you've never tried it before, then the reliable waves make Kingscliff the perfect place to take your first steps on a board. The waters are also popular with kayakers, swimmers and anglers, too. And having fun round here doesn't have to mean getting wet – there are plenty of cycleways and coastal walking paths, and when you're done exercising, you can settle down with a great meal and a glass of the good stuff in 1 of Kingscliff's restaurants.

Weather

What's a bit of thunder in paradise between friends?

All that tropical fruit needs tropical conditions, and you'd best pack your classic Aussie waxed coat and wide-brim hat, because things can get a little bit damp round here. This is especially true in the summer months, when it can be very hot and humid, with frequent thunderstorms blowing through. Winters, on the other hand, are a lot drier, and for many people this is their favourite season to visit Kingscliff and the surrounding area. It's still not what you'd call bone dry, but rainfall is a fraction of what it is in the summertime, and temperatures are deliciously mild.
