Overnight Byron Tours also include a visit to the famous little town Nimbin, host of the 1973 Aquarius Festival. Tour Nimbin’s fascinating mix of alternative culture, local shops, galleries and cafes. From Nimbin, the tour weaves through the beautiful Byron hinterland to our Mount Warning camp site. 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). Finally, we’ll take you to some of the prettiest and most secluded beaches of Byron for a swim and to hopefully catch a glimpse of the local dolphins or migrating whales (May to October). End your overnight escape with a delicious BBQ on the beach.
