Hire a car in Byron Bay
Australia’s most eastern point, Byron Bay is a city you’re sure to return to.
Though no longer the dedicated hippie hangout it once was, it’s still a young-feeling city with a full tank of energy. With its abundance of sunshine and perfectly timed waves, the New South Wales town is an understandable favourite among backpackers and surfers.
Byron’s big brother, Brisbane, is only a two hour drive down the coast while some of the country’s lush rainforests are even closer. If you’re interested in a road trip of epic Aussie standards, renting four wheels and following the Gold Coast is the way to go.

With glittering azure waters teeming with sea life and a laid back coastal atmosphere, it’s one of the most popular destinations in Australia. Hiring a car in Byron Bay is a great low cost way to explore the incredible surrounding landscape on your own terms.

Surfers flock to the area to ride the waves near the Cape, but the town also offers treats and treasures for those not looking to hang ten! It’s a key stop off point along the beloved east coast route from Brisbane to Sydney, attracting thousands of travellers of all ages throughout the year. This gives Byron Bay a cosmopolitan, bohemian atmosphere, with activities such as yoga and Tai Chi as popular as sunbathing and swimming! Of course, the beaches are sublime. Golden, pristine and lapped by stunningly clear waters, it’s tempting just to lie back in the sand for hours! If you want to get closer to the marine world you can arrange a scuba diving trip, or head out dolphin watching on a cruiser. During the migration season you can also see thousands of humpback whales. Byron Bay gets a little more exuberant over Easter, when the town stages a wonderful East Coast Blues and Roots Festival featuring international music stars.
