Byron Bay – Shire

Byron is the main town in Byron Shire, a generous lush green habitat with pockets of small village style rural towns, agriculture, mountains, rivers and long sandy surf beach coastline as it hugs around it’s famous ocean bay where dolphins and whales are seen playing as they migrate up and down the South Eastern Pacific Ocean. The lighthouse at Cape Byron is iconic for the ever fresh thrill of natures contrasts where sky, land and ocean meet.

The main towns in the Byron Shire are Bangalow, Brunswick Heads, Byron town, Mullumbimby, New Brighton, Ocean Shores, Suffolk Park and here is a list of all the suburbs and towns in Byron Shire.
