Finish your day sitting around a campfire, toasting marshmallows and enjoying a delicious, locally sourced BBQ dinner before falling asleep under the stars in either your tent or cabin (twin-share room).
The following day, visit the beautiful little hinterland town Bangalow, with a fascinating mix of local shops, galleries and cafes. Or for tours departing on Saturday, discover something special at the famous Sunday markets where over 300 stalls transform sleepy Byron hinterland towns into vibrant meccas of arts, crafts, live music and local delicious food (Sunday markets are subject to rotation).
