Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This location provides a breathtaking vista, and during my visit, I had the privilege of observing dolphins playfully jumping in and out of the water. However, it is important to note that the trail was inaccessible during my visit. Additionally, be prepared to incur a parking fee of AUD10 unless you are willing to undertake a lengthy walk from the base to the lighthouse.

    I wanted to attempt this as the sign from the Holiday Park said it was only just over 2kms.

    As I've had several heart operations my wife thought it a bit ambitious but I wanted to try.

    Sufficient to say I didn't make it all the way to the lighthouse but the walk through the bush was lovely.

    Water Dragons scurrying out across the track scared the bejeezus out of us as being from New Zealand we were wary of snakes.

    There is a lovely cafe at the one car park which served great coffee and cream buns.

    A reasonably fit person could easily do this walk.

    Lovely scenery and ocean views.

    A nice area on the side of Byron Bay where you can see beautiful beaches, surfers, a hiking trail with good views and finally the lighthouse.

    Its been a few years since we visted the farm and it has lost abit of its magic. We started with the 10.30am tour however that was not at all interactive or give us much insight into the farm. It would definitely not be at all interesting to children however more suited to older couples interested in the business model. (Most of the businesses that operate are tenants of the farm). A few people left the tour early. Just save yourself the money and do a self guided tour. There are bee hives, chickens, pigs, horse which you can view yourself and a macadamia farm from which you can forage for nuts for with a cracking machine on picnic tables. The lunch at three blue ducks was very nice and service also really good. The coffee as someone else has mentioned leaves quite a bitter aftertaste. The gelato next to the play ground is definitely a highlight.

    Located just off the beach at The Pass .. the Fisherman’s Lookout has good views along Byron Bay’s foreshore

    As well as the surrounding views from Fisherman’s Lookout .. I liked the rock formations

    If you visited this Byron Bay lookout during higher tides .. you’ll need to walk through water

    For the magnificent views , from the Most Easterly Point of the Australian Mainland .. makes the strenuous walk , via a sealed track , to this Cape Byron Lookout , totally worthwhile

    The Wreck is named after the ship Wollongbar that is lodged just of shore at Belongil Beach and about 65 meters from the Main Beach at Byron Bay. The Wreck is a favourite spot for surfers> When I was there in December I just saw a bit with seagulls perched on it, as it was high tide. When you google The Wreck there are many images on the net.

    Plenty to see in the many small shops. A friendly atmosphere and no pressure selling. This is one place where you can find genuine Australian products made by locals, but check the labels carefully.,

    If visiting Byron Bay .. I recommend a stroll & climb around the hidden gem of - The Pass

    The Pass .. is within the impressive nature reserve of Cape Byron State Conservation Area

    Within The Pass .. you have the
    * Fisherman's Lookout
    * Nature & Views
    * Palm Valley & Palm Valley Loop Walking Track .. which is a short nature walk with different Australian palms
    * Barbecue & Picnic Areas
    * The Pass Cafe
    * Clarkes Beach
    * Cape Byron Walking Track
    * Car parking - metered

    I visited the beautiful The Pass & other scenic locations around Cape Byron Conservation Area .. a few times in 2022

    For the picturesque views of lower Cape Byron Conversation Area Headlands .. enduring the energetic hillside walk , to this Cape Byron Lookout - making it worth while

    I liked the rock formations & Little Wategos Beach

    The sealed hillside track is surely not PWD friendly .. due to the amount of steps

    I had the opportunity to study Thai massage for two months with Valentia. She turned out to be a super teacher, as well as a fantastic person, available to meet my needs, courteous and supportive. Learning from her you can see her dedication to this discipline. The material studied was more than exhaustive and enriching.
    I felt guided, and always at ease in asking to repeat positions or maneuvers that were not clear to me.
    I recommend it to all those who, by profession or passion, want to know a little more about ways to support the body's well-being and maintain a high level of self-healing capacity.
