The town has all major facilities: a hospital, cinema, supermarket, health food stores and great restaurants, as well as a flourishing alternative health industry. Bicycle is the easiest way to get around town and easily organized through Byron Yoga Centre.

Reconnect with nature on a walk through the lush rainforest that leads to the famous Byron Bay lighthouse. If you like native wildlife this is something you won’t want to miss, because you might see wallabies, dolphins, whales and a number of birds.
With the ancient Oriental art of Qui Gung you’ll find another way to inner calm. Much like yoga, it’s all about using the breath and movement to restore your life energy. It’s a lovely walk or short cycle to Byron Beach where you can take time out to swim, sunbathe or watch the sand artist create his giant swirls and peace signs.
You can go under the water and scuba dive around Julian Rocks to look for turtles, cuttlefish, white spotted eagle rays and sharks, or watch the water at dusk while dancing to the local drummers; the beats reverberate right through your chest! The town also boasts great cafes, clothes shops, trinkets, jewelry, and if you’re lucky you may see the local llama being led around town by his eccentric keeper.
A highlight of your stay will be the luxurious, relaxing and cleansing treatments. All you need to do here is laidback and relax, while the therapists work their magic amongst the lush tropical gardens.
Options include massage, body scrubs, facials, wraps, manicures and pedicures, and may be at your retreat accommodation or the nearby Buddha Gardens. Additional treatments can be pre-booked from the Buddha Gardens menu.
