Byron Bay, NSW
With its free-spirited reputation for beachy relaxation, Byron Bay has quickly become a favourite destination for event organisers seeking the perfect location for delegates to escape the daily grind. This coastal town is full of character and well-known for its iconic beaches and surfing culture. It’s also home to Australia’s most eastern point; the Cape Byron Lighthouse.
In the past, accommodation here, particularly for corporate groups was slim as the area was predominantly leisure focussed. More recently, with launch of a range of new accommodation options on offer, event organisers are now eagerly flagging this hotspot as a preferred destination.
Located a 30-minute drive from Ballina Byron Gateway Airport, visitors can get direct flights from Melbourne and Sydney as well as easy connections to other major cities and international destinations. The location is also just under an hour’s drive from the Gold Coast and two hours from Brisbane.
Conference venues here are best suited to medium sized groups up to roughly 300 and options for all sorts of activities are available. Here you’ll find a huge array of food and wine experiences with cooking schools, food tours and award-winning restaurants all available. There’s hot air ballooning over the hinterland, golf, ocean kayaking with dolphins, beachside teambuilding and of course, surfing lessons.
Here you’ll also find accommodation options to suit all budgets, from award-winning luxury 5-star resorts to a glamping village in the hinterland such as Flash Camp. You’ll also find a selection of professional event suppliers ready to ensure your event looks and runs seamlessly.
