Our Three Blue Ducks restaurant in Byron is in the heart of one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever been in - the ocean’s five minutes away, and then you’ve got Byron Bay lighthouse just behind you. It’s completely stunning.

Travel tip

Even though Byron Bay is located in New South Wales, it's only a 1.5-hour drive to the Queensland surf city of the Gold Coast. Take the legendary Pacific Coast Touring Route for an epic road trip to Sydney, Byron and the Gold Coast.
