We may be a tiny bit biased, but we couldn’t think of a better spot to spend the Easter long weekend than in Byron Bay! There are so many things to do here; you will never have a dull moment; from immersing yourself in the natural beauty and plethora of outdoor activities to discovering the rich food and wine culture, you can fill your days with pure joy. We feel incredibly fortunate to call this place home; here are a few suggestions to add to your upcoming Easter itinerary.
The Byron School of Clay, located in the industrial estate, is a hub of creativity! Their stunning studio by the sea caters for everyone, whether you are a newbie or well versed in the world of clay. Choose from wheel throwing or handcraft workshops and get inspired by the local community, who consistently spend their time in this magical place. Being the largest pottery school in the area, they have flexible availability - so if the sun does a little hiding one afternoon, this is a great indoor option for you and the whole family.
If you are craving a little local wellness, we couldn’t recommend Nimbus highly enough. Their space is designed to give you a bespoke experience in health and wholeness with their state of the art infrared saunas and ice baths. This combination is renowned for its long list of benefits, including aiding your body's detoxification, muscle recovery, and circulation. You will feel sky-high afterwards!
The Byron Beachside Markets will be on this Easter Friday, and these are definitely worth a visit! Situated next to the Surf Club, hundreds of stalls are set up from the early morning, with an abundance of local produce, designs, plants, and home decor…the list goes on! It’s an excellent opportunity to find artisan gifts or souvenirs from your Byron Bay trip and enjoy the live music and delicious food on offer, too. Good vibes only!
After an afternoon tipple? The Mez Club offers Mediterranean style grazing, tapas, platters and arguably the best margaritas in town. Transport yourself to the Greek Islands in their stunning setting; whitewash walls, rattan furniture and glowing lanterns surround a buzzing atmosphere. Weekend nights often offer live DJ sets, another fun excuse to get dressed up and a Byron hot spot with friends.
Lastly, why not explore some of the less known beaches of Byron. Take a short drive south out of town to Broken Head National Park and set up for a day's adventure at the likes of Whites Beach, Brays or continue down Seven Mile Road to find yourself at the north tip of this colossal beach. Pack an esky, umbrella and good book for some serious downtime in paradise.
