Stay in Byron Bay
I stayed three nights in a 5-bunk dorm. The hostel is a good base to explore the surrounding area. Don't miss Wategos beach, Cape Byron lighthouse, Nimbin and Mullumbimby. All great destinations.

Check in & out quick, 10 dollars deposit for key. Room was with a couple of long stayers with one in particular who thought he owned the room. No air conditioning which meant really hot at night. No many showers. Activities arranged some days like walking trips and bbq etc.
